Am running this week’s blogging marathon with Dish under 30 minutes as theme. After two delicious dishes which takes hardly less than 30 minutes to get ready, here comes an another one pot meal with my favourite nuts aka cashew. Cashew nuts makes this simple pulao more rich with their incredible nuttiness, be generous to add cashewnuts while making this pulao. And to bring the flavor to this pulao, the soaked basmati rice is cooked completely with thick homemade coconut milk. Needless to say that this pulao will definitely please anyone’s tastebuds easily than you can imagine. You can also add a mixture of nuts to make this same pulao even more richer. Enjoy this pulao with some rich paneer or chicken based curries as side dish.
