Babycorn Pulao | Pilaf
Babycorn manchurian is one of my favorite babycorn recipe and most of the time I end up doing the same, but once in a while I try to do different things and this babycorn pulao or pulav is one of such attempt for a Saturday lunch. I like to do one pot meal and I did the same for this pilaf too. The flavours are mild & perfect for kids, makes this as lunch box and they will be happy or to make this a grant meal pair it up with some rich spicy gravy and you are done. A very simple and delicious babycorn pulao recipe for you. I made cucumber raita and yum pan fry along, I know yam fry with pulao, you must be thinking but spicy yam fry with mild pulao and raita was a wonderful combo.
