Kadhai Veg. Pulao/Rice

by Neetu

When I made this lovely Kadhai Masala (you can find the recipe here) one thing I was very sure of, that I won’t make usual kadhai paneer, kadhai mushroom or anything like that using this spice mix. So, I thought of this pulao recipe and trust me guyzzz you have to try it, for my sake, pleaseeeee… It came out really well and was kind of a quicker version of veg Biryani, infact I thought I will use this spice mix in other Biryani preparations as well.

Well, I got so hungry in the process of cooking that couldn’t do the final garnish really well, so don’t be disappointed with the recipe pic, it tastes awesome!!!!
