Of all the pulao prepared in the Punjab this is perhaps one that is most commonly served. It looks good, tastes good and does not require much time or effort to prepare. During winter in Punjab, ripe red and juicy carrots are in profusion and all sorts of dishes are prepared with them. Choose bright red carrots for this dish, which will impart a lovely red colour to the pulao. The subtle blend of Punjabi spices such as saunf, elaichi and dalchini are a treat for your taste buds. Serve this pulao steaming hot with fresh curds.
