Here in UAE we get only one telugu channel.Back home when i went last saw many telugu channels airing cooking programs.I hardly used to watch Gemini and that is the only channel which i am forced to watch here.Every day at 10.30 local time they air a cooking program.I always jot down the recipes and do them on fridays.Last friday i did this pulao.This pulao is a mixture of mint and coriender leaves along with sabut masala.I served it with dhaniya chicken and mint raita.
Here goes the recipe:-
Onions chopped 1
Potatoes chopped 2
Green chillies silted 2
Ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
Shahi zeera 1 tsp
Bay leaves 2
Elachi big 1
Cinammon 1'' pc
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Make a paste of the below ingredients:-
Pudina/mint fresh 1 cup
Coriender leaves fres 1/2 cup
Heat oil,add all the sabut garam masala.Fry till you get the nice aroma.
Add onions and green chillies.Fry till onion are pink in colour.
Add pudina and coriender paste.Saute till oil comes out.
Then add washed and drained rice.Mix thoroughly.
Add 1 1/2 glass water and salt as per taste.When water starts boiling add rice.
When rice starts dancing put the flame in medium and cover the vessel.
Check for the water,if you find water is less,add hot water to the rice.
When cooked,leave if for 5 mintues before serving.Serve it your choice of curry and raita.
