Rice variety are tasty and filling. They are ideal to use as a single dish or pair it with other variety of dishes. Pulao is one of the dishes that I make quite often, it’s loved by all and its easy for me to prepare. Green pulao, I have been making this since sometime, it make a good one pot meal.

Green pulao has the combination of mint and coriander along with other spices. I usually serve with onion raita (onion in yoghurt), but it can be paired with cucumber and onion raita too. A gravy based dish will also be ideal for a good meal.

Recipe Notes

  • Quantity of water depends on the rice. I usually add two cups of water for one cup of rice.
  • I do not soak the rice in water. I wash the rice, drain the water and keep it aside, this gives me good results. 
  • You may soak the rice if you wish.
  • I prefer to use oil and ghee mixture. You may use only ghee or oil.
