Hey all! This is another recipe I have made this week and I just couldn’t stop myself from sharing it with you! One fact about pulav is that every state, region has their own way of making it depending on the kind of spices, vegetables or materials that are available in that particular area. In other words, when rice is cooked with spices, vegetables or meat for short time in one container then it is called Pulav. Today’s recipe is from Himalayas, this place is well known for apples and the recipes from this place are more on the sweeter side. Today’s recipe is a savory sweet rice, though there are lot of ingredients it is very little work to do and it will cook very easily. Let’s get started!
The best rice that can be used in this recipe is Basmati rice. One speciality about this rice is that if it is soaked for a minimum of 30 minutes before it is cooked, its texture and flavor will be divine. Till last year I used to do this process of pre soaking it and then cooking it, but sometimes I used to forget about the soaking part and I used to cook it straight away. Then the texture of the rice is somewhat gummy. So finally I found a solution! Check out the print friendly recipe.
I have purposefully added less sugar in this recipe because I like it if main course is not too sweet. So I added sweet vegetables, dry fruits and some fruits in the recipe to get the flavor. Do feel free to add more sugar/ sweetener to your rice. ( Check the recipe for more tips)
