Achari Chana Pulao Recipe
A completely different take on how to serve Chana and a platter of rice together, Achari Chana Pulao is an interesting recipe that tastes out of the world with raita.
While the entire week goes by in a jiffy and the calendar keeps on turning the months at the speed of a roller coaster, my refuge lies in the fact that with every change, I keep trying to innovate and try as many unusual recipes as possible. Isn’t it good guys?
Achari Chana Pulao Recipe also lies in that coterie of recipes, fellow foodies. I have used chick peas for making various dishes like Pindi Chana Masala, Aam aur Chana Chaat earlier but having tried Sabz Badi Pulao I had a gut that the combination of chickpea and rice would surely work well. And was I wrong? No wayyy 🙂
And hence for the weekend dinner this last week, I tried my hands of Achari Chana Pulao and mark my words, it turned out really, really good.
Very convenient to make with Achari Masala made up earlier at home, Achari Chana Pulao is best savoured with any raita of your choice but you can relish it as it is as well. I have also added cauliflower and potato in Achari Chana Pulao to give that nice blend and flavour along with onion and ginger garlic paste.
If you are already thinking about what to make for the festive daawat then let Achari Chana Pulao be on you choice list because it won’t you down any day, you have my words.
On that note, tear up the all new pack of Basmati and chick peas and make plans to prepare Achari Chana Pulao already!
