Riot of color Pulao
Thanks for all those who participated in the first event at Saffron Trail. The Weekend Breakfast Blogging table was filled with breakfast foods from around the world. Check out the round up with the guidelines to WBB#2 here.
Pulao is so common-place and biryani is so much effort. I like a pulao that’s simple to make and yet has all the exotica of the biryani. This was the first time I was using some finely chopped beet in a rice recipe, the result was a beautiful colour and a subtle sweet taste. The raisins and dried apricots added another layer of taste and texture. Though we make it a point not have rice more than once a week-in order to avoid refined carbs, this kind of veggie-rice mix makes sure we don’t load up much on rice.
It looks like a lot of ingredients down there, but you will readily find most of the stuff in your pantry. Things that you don’t find can be easily replaced.
