Pulao or Pilaf is one of the most relished dish at my place. There are many types of Pulao and also different ways of making it. The traditional methods are longer and time consuming.
I cook different types of Pulao. Today I am sharing with you one of the Yummiest pulao recipe that will be relished by all age groups. It is called Fusion Pulao. I have tried to make it a little heathier with less oil, more vegetables and quinoa.
