chicken pulao | how to make chicken pulao
Healthy chicken vegetable pulao recipe.
Chicken pulao with the goodness of vegetables and spinach. Compared to other rice dishes, pulao is more healthy because we can add vegetables,spinach,mutton etc…. I have also added soya chunks which makes this dish more protein rich. You can also add dry fruits like raisins,nuts,badam etc… In this chicken pulao, I cooked chicken with pepper and salt and then cooked rice along with vegetables and masala. I would like to share some of my healthy rice like
Mint rice | Puthina Rice
Cilantro rice | malliyila rice
Soya chunks biriyani
Soya chunks fried rice
Pineapple fried rice
