Rice and sprouted vaal waltz together to make a delectable one-dish meal! you can also make this pulao with only garlic and red chillies. Whichever way you make it, remember that the specialty of this dish is that it is to be cooked in oil unlike other rice preparations, which are usually cooked in ghee.
