Kashmiri Pulao Recipe | Kashmiri Pulao

Kashmiri Pulao or Kashmiri Pulav is aromatic, sweet, mild, colorful pulao unlike any other pulao.  Kashmiri pulao is very easy to prepare with lot of variety and fruits variations, dry fruits are added generously in this kashmiri pulao which makes this unique. If you don't like your pulao to be on sweet side then just add less of fruits and fry fruits in this recipe and customize according to your preferences and need. Kashmiri pulao we can eat by self and doesn't really require any side dish or even a raita works great along.  But we can pair it with some paneer butter masala or even chole works good or if you prefer some chicken curry on side.

This kashmiri pulao is not something that I make often I like jeera rice and peas pulao more as those are quick and easy recipe and t his time I made this for a large gathering in DH office where I used 1kg of rice and all the other ingredients are used in that proportion so you can see lot of things but I have mentioned the recipe which can serve 4 to 5 people. You can double up or reduce the ingredients according to your needs.


The crowd of various nationals people so I selected this kashmiri pulao as it's mild and not spicy which other than Indians can eat without much trouble and along with it I made my signature dish Chole Masala, I know mixing two different cuisine but when working for unknown and large diverse group we need to think what will people like better and for starters I kept Dhokla.


Everything was super hit specially Kashmiri pulao and dhokla so I am sharing this wonderful as this is festive season friends, family and party at it's peak so you can try this pulao too.


You can make this easy pulao recipe which you can make for lunch box, any party, potluck, get-together, festivals and just to make your day special.  Fried onion is used to garnish kashmiri pulao but I have skipped onion, if you wish you can fry onion and garnish it along fruits and dry fruits.
