Pulao is usually associated with rice. Here, i have tried to make a different kind of pulao using bulgur wheat which has a very good fibre content. Addition of vegetables and paneer makes it all the more nourishing by adding protein and calcium as well as making it appealing for your infant. Serve it with fresh curds to make a complete meal.
