Share this recipe:


This is the simplest pulao that I have ever made. Green peas, garlic, mint, coriander all these ingredients will give nice flavors and awesome taste. These pulao has not added any spices but other all ingredients give it amazing aroma and flavor to the dish. I love to have this pulao with this dal recipe. If you are serving to the kids then reduce or omit green chilies. So get in your kitchen make this pulao with dal and let me know the feedback in comment. I appreciate your feedback and suggestions.


Enjoy, everyone!

    Hey There made this today it was just perfect!! the only thing which made me to experiment was quantity coz mom wanted me to make for 1kg rice so quantity differed but method and ingredients were same, i was curious hw its going to come out until i tasted 😀

    I got some fresh peas and was planning to make peas pulao, as usual surfing surfing for exact kind which can serve the purpose, urs looks exactly flavorful and the difference which i was looking for. I guess if i add a lil curd after frying the onion, would give a tang and veg biriyani taste i guess 😛 Would try this version with lil variations as usual and let ya know 😀 cya till then keep updating more :)
