    I love pulao. One of my favourite dishes. Over here we don’t usually add vegetables, but I have tasted that variety too and the veggies certainly add to the flavour.
    Your pulao looks great. That picture has me drooling. One of these days I AM going to get up and start making pulao (and not the khayali kind).
