You can also conjure up healthy, protein-packed treats like the Spicy Sprouts Pulao and the Soya Mutter Pulao within this time. When you yearn for a tongue-tickler, try your hand at the Hara Bhara Subz Pulao or Achari Paneer Pulao . Regional delights like the Gatte Ka Pulao and innovative treats like the Pearl Pulao also need just the same old 30 minutes!
