Tri-colour pulav is a three layered rice of varying tastes and colour as the name implifies, gives a satisfying taste when blended together.This dish involves a little bit of work, but its worth it. It is ideal as an weekend menu. 

Green, white and orange are the three layers that are made, the vegetables are used accordingly.

I often convince myself that pulav is the best meal for my children as they eat it without any fuss. My son needs a curry along with it but rest of us are good with a yoghurt based salad. The  pulav recipes that I usually make on holidays are Mint PulaoCorn and Peas Pulao, Spring onion and corn Pulao
