My kids love this fruits and nuts pulao because of fruits and nuts as it gives some sweetness to the pulao. It is also very easy to make as vegetable pulao.

  • Whole garam masala - fennel seeds, bay leaves, cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon, mace(jathipathri)
  • Mint - some

 Method:

1. Add some salt and cook the rice with 3 cups of water. Once the rice is cooked and cool it by pouring into big bowl or basin. Add 1 or 2 tbsp of oil to the rice so it wont be sticky.
