Pulao is a moreish, rice-based dish which is made slightly pungent using various Indian spices and in order to make it, various types of vegetables are used as well. It is hailed as a popular dish in the Indian, Iranian, Pakistani, Afghani, Turkish and many other cuisines of the world.
But I still feel butterflies in my stomach whenever I endure and try a new type of Pulao. Sabz Badi Pulao was one such attempt. As its name says, Sabz Badi Pulao is loaded with veggies like onion, carrot, beans, cauliflower, and peas and nuggets made using Urad Dal.
These nuggets lend an amazing munch to this dish. Also, zeera, green cardamom, cloves, black cardamom, cinnamon stick, and bay leaf grant it a pungent taste. The flavour and the aroma of Sabz Badi Pulao are also quite inviting.
The minute it got made, my kiddo traced its aroma and came running to the kitchen out of curiosity. We trio relished piping hot Sabz Badi Pulao with some creamy Spring Onion Peanut Raita during lunch and then went for a road trip.
This pulao turned out to be so decadent that I am definitely going to make it once again. In case you wish to try this lip-smacking Sabz Badi Pulao, here’s its simple recipe:
