Pulav

by AnneJacob
Pulao is a very tasty rice dish often served during parties and special occasions. Pulao is uniquely prepared by cooking rice in a broth and taking care so that the rice do not stick together and are separate. Lightly frying the rice before cooking helps Pulao to retain the original texture. Pulao pairs well with a series of creamy textured curries. Pulao is nutritious with a healthy assortment of mixed vegetables. You can explore a step wise presented Pulao dish here.
