A Flavourful Microwave Vegetable Pulao

This Vegetable Pulao I often make in Microwave whenever I am in a hurry to fix a lunch or dinner. It's a very flavourful pulao recipe with some aromatic spices. You can just have it without any side dish or just with any kind of raita or pickle. Goes well with any vegetable side dish or Non-veg. side dishes. This time I had it with Chicken chaap.

Biriyani masala : 2 tsp.(optional)(available in Indian grocery store)
Green cardamoms : 3-4
Cloves : 4
Cinnamon stick : 1(1")
Crush all the spices together into a coarse powder
