Plain Pulao | Sada Pulao Recipe | Plain Pulao Rice

Plain Pulao or sada pulao rice is easy one pot meal which can make in jiffy and also do lot of variations with it. This plain pulao also makes excellent lunch box recipe or even perfect comfort meal for weekend when you have some good curry on making whether veg or non-veg then this simple pulao makes best combo. We can also use coconut milk to cook the pulao for extra flavors. Add few more vegetables if preferred.

In my in-laws place this pulao is made most along with bagara bhaat and normally simple pulao goes well with any side dish. This time we made matar paneer as a side and both made excellent combo along with that fresh radish leaves was used to make this mooli saag bhaji. You can serve this pulao with whatever you like even a simple raita will also do the trick. This recipe is good for lunch box since we can make this in jiffy and in pressure cooker so saving lot of time.


This pulao also goes well with some good chicken curry too, we made the same along with chicken potato curry I will post that recipe soon and it was great too. Adding peas in this recipe is just option if you wish add. But do add the peppercorns it adds wonderful flavor to the pulao so don't miss on that.
