When you hear the word pulao, the first thing that comes to mind is veggies and rice cooked with whole spices. But, this Chawli and Kabuli Chana Pulao is completely different.

Here, the rice is combined with two pulses of contrasting colours and tastes, perked up with tomatoes, onions and a tempering of mustard seeds.

A dash of garam masala and a squeeze of lemon add more josh to this pulao, making it a tongue-tickling treat. Relish it hot and fresh with a raita of your choice.

You can also try other pulaos like the Shahi Pulao or Palak Pulao .

My family and me were really bored of the regular rice recipes, so I came across this recipe and it was truly amazing, the combination of pulses along with other spices was just perfect.
