NOTES:-

  • To make it more flavourful, addition of coconut milk instead of water while cooking the pulao gives it a rich flavor.
  • A teaspoon of garam masala can be added for more spice and flavour.
  • Kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves) can be added if you do not have mint leaves on hand. The pulao tastes good even without mint, kasuri methi or coriander leaves.
