Pulao is a rice preparation that combines rice with an aesthetic blend of spices, and other ingredients like veggies, Sprouts, Paneer, Dry fruits, nuts, etc. In this busy era, when people hardly have time to cook, pulao is a brilliant choice, because it can be eaten as a one-dish meal or served with simple accompaniments depending on the spice level of the recipe. Moreover, pulao is something that’s loved by everyone, young and old, so you can make just one dish to please the whole family! Who can resist the charm of evergreen delights like Veg Pulao, Green Peas Pulao, Jeera Pulao or the pleasantly sweet Kashmiri Pulao?

Pulao is always made with whole grains of rice, either white or brown. The long grains of Basmati are just perfect to make attractive and tasty pulaos. Health-conscious people these days opt to make their pulaos with fibre-rich brown rice, which is a good decision too.

Apart from rice and spices, your pulao can include an endless number of other ingredients, not just vegetables. You can toss in some greens like Spinach (Palak) or Fenugreek (Methi), herbs like Mint or Coriander, sprouts or beans, paneer, Tofu or even koftas! The ingredients used also contribute their flavour to the pulao. For example, if you have added Capsicum or fenugreek leaves to your pulao, you are sure to experience the unique flavours of these ingredients in every mouthful! Different combinations of ingredients give the pulao a different look and feel – so, there is no end to the variety of pulaos that are there. If you are bored of the standard ones, you can mix-and-match ingredients and make your own special pulao.

A pressure cooker will help you make the pulao really fast and easily too. Just temper the spices, add the soaked rice, toss in all the other ingredients and cook to perfection. You just need to be careful about the amount of water you add, and the duration of time for which you cook, because you want a pulao with perfectly-cooked grains of rice, not a glorious khichdi! While the pulao is usually made in a pressure cooker, a biryani is cooked in a handi. It is amazing how the utensil used changes the flavour of the food!

You can go for a popular pulao like:
1. Vegetable Pulao
2. Matar Pulao, Green Pea Pulao
3. Spicy Vegetable Pulao
4. Tava Pulao
5. Paneer Pulao
6. Aloo Gobhi Ka Pulao
7. Shahi Pulao

Or something unusual like:
1. Vegetables Pulao with Coconut Curry
2. Tava Sprouts Pulao
3. Gatte ka Pulao
4. Achari Chana Pulao
5. Green Peas and Methi Pulao

These unusual pulaos are especially handy when guests come over. They are easy to make but appear special! You can make a couple of starters, prepare a unique pulao and serve it with a few peppy accompaniments. Your guests will thoroughly enjoy the meal!

You have to choose your accompaniments depending on the spice-level of your pulao. If your pulao is bland, serve it with kadhi, else a simple raita or just a cup of curds will do. Papads are a must, to add an element of crunch to the tasty meal!

Some of the best accompaniments for pulao are:
1. Kadhi
2. Raita
3. Plain Curds
4. Papad
5. Khichiya
6. Kachumber
7. Masala Papad

Tips for making a good pulao:
1. Always use a big pressure cooker so that all the ingredients cook well
2. Make sure you add the correct amount of water mentioned in the recipe. Else, the rice might not be cooked fully, or it might turn out gooey like khichdi
3. Try and make sure each grain of rice is separate so it looks good and tastes good too
4. Make the pulao as close to serving time as possible so it will be nice and hot
5. Mix the pulao very gently just before serving

Go ahead and try the below recipes. You can prepare them without any fuss even after a busy and tiring day. Armed with our tips, you are sure to get them all right, and your loved ones will relish every bit of the meal!

Well it's a kind of quick fix if you don't consider the one hour soak time. one can avoid it if you want to, only thing is that rice will take fauther time to cook. the best part is that any vegetable can go depending on the seasonal availability.
