For the ones who don't like plain rice, pulao is the next best option. Boiled rice infused with ghee, herbs and spices - pulao spells indulgence. It is simple, flavourful and lies somewhere between bland rice and rich biryani. This unique (light yet flavourful) feature makes pulao a popular choice among all. And the best part is you will find different versions of pulao across India. In fact, almost every regional food culture has its unique pulao recipe. Some of these recipes also include meat, fish and vegetables in the ingredients. Besides, we also customise a pulao recipe as per our taste. Take Bengali pulao, for instance. A quintessential Bengali pulao - also known as Basanti Pulao - is aromatic, sweet and yellow in colour. But, if you explore, you will also find a white and salty version of the dish that is specially customised for the ones who doesn't enjoy the sweet flavour in their meals.
Likewise, in Kashmiri cuisine, we get the popular zafrani pulao. Much like basanti pulao, it too is aromatic, saffron-infused, yellow coloured rice that is served with spicy curries. But that's not all. You will also find another version Kashmiri pulao recipe that includes fresh cream in it. Let's find out how to make it.
