Bored with the regular pulao, this is something really very different and equally tasty. sevaiyan pulao best in tiffin for the kids as it is so easy to make and quick in the morning to prepare, this pulao stays without sticking to each other for atleast 4 to 5 hours. I am very happy with this recipe.
