With a unique flavour that is sweet and pungent, baby onions fit beautifully into this flavoursome pulao. An assortment of spices ranging from cardamom to cloves work along with the onions to give the Pearl Pulao a mind-blowing flavour, while the generous use of fresh cream and cheese give it an awesomely rich texture, which caresses your palate. Guaranteed to delight if served hot and fresh!

Serve with Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables in Butter and Parsley and Garlic Loaf for a satiating meal.
