The presence of the word Shahi always hints at the richness of a recipe.
Indeed, the Shahi Pulao is a dish that is loaded with spices, veggies and a horde of other ingredients, which give it a memorable flavour and texture.
While an assortment of spices including saffron and caraway seeds gives this rice preparation a rich aroma, taste and hue, veggies, pineapple and paneer give it a wonderful range of textures.
Pineapple also gives the dish a juicy tanginess, which you are sure to enjoy. Self-contained with myriad flavours, this one-dish meal can be served with just a bowl of curds or raita .
