Some substitute vegetable pulao for a biryani. However this pulao is much lighter than its rich and heavy counterpart. It is a pulao bursting with flavor of herbs, spices and the basmati rice gives it an irresistible fragrance. Chef Sanjay Thumma uses a rice cooker to make this pulao so you need not worry about overcooking or undercooking the rice. It’s the perfect side dish to almost all curries and stews.
