Mushroom Pulav

Kids love mushrooms specially stir fries. I got my hands on these good quality mushrooms and I made Pulav for kids lunch boxes. They loved the taste and I love the simplicity of this Pulav.
Sisters kids were visiting and they loved the Pulav too. So, I can say it tastes good both hot and cold.  I'm sending this recipe to Blogging Marathon #71 under one pot dishes.
