For those who love the complex interplay of spices in pickles, this Pulao will be a dream come true. Rice, fortified with kabuli chana, is perked up with an interesting assortment of spices ranging from nigella and fenugreek to fennel seeds and black cardamoms, along with some readymade spice powders too.


But, the real twist in this recipe is the addition of a couple of spoons of aam ka achaar, which gives a really sprightly flavour and aroma to the pulao. Being quite flavourful by itself, this Achaari Chana Pulao can be served simply with a cup of curds , or perhaps a bowl of dal like Dahiwali Toovar Dal , Dal Kadhi , Masoor Dal or Tamatar ki Kadhi .

The best part of this recipe is that it is very quick. All we have to do is just put them all in the pressure cooker and whistle it. The common spices used in this recipe lends an amazing flavour to it. I carry it many times in my tiffin, when i am in a hurry to prepare something quick in the morning.
