This was beeeeautiful! I increased the servings to 4, I soaked the rice for about 20 minutes before using. It was delicious hot and superb cold... this is certainly going to be used by me veeery often. Thanks Anu!

I really liked this. It was a really yummy pulao, and easy to do. My only quibble is that the rice cooking times were off for me, but otherwise this was gold.

I hate to do this, but this was okay. I did exactly as written and mine turned out "soggy" and bland. It smelled wonderful when I was sauteing the rice with the spices and while it simmered. I'm not sure what happened. I will try to make this again and see how it turns out the 2nd time. I always like to try something twice just incase I missed something the first time. It almost seemed like there was too much water.

I agree with everyone else. This dish smells fabulous and tastes even better. Very simple to do. Just count the cloves you put in so you can fish them out--not so lovely to bite into one.

That is the perfect title for this recipe..."Aromatic"! My kids thought I was making some sort of baked good, it smells devine! Had this last night with curry chicken and roti. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Anu! :)

This is a really easy and tasty recipe. After saute-ing the rice with the onions and the spices, I cooked the mixture in a rice cooker with the right amount of water. It turned out great.

Great. Very nice way to use up veggies on hand. I also added a little chopped capsicum which I had. Easy to make. I doubled the recipe and ate the entire thing with yoghurt alongside;)

Lovely recipe Anu, I use all ingredients in the pulao I make except that I use ginger-garlic paste and use a chicken/vegetable stock cube instead of the salt. I saute them with the onions I also add some chopped coriander leaves as garnish (I sometimes add it before cooking too for a differece in flavour. :)Fay
