  9. Thanks for posting delicious recipe.It is very nice.By looking at the images mouth starts watering.we can make the Vegetable Pulao in a pressure cooker or in a pan. the rice grains have to be separate & yet well cooked in a pulao or biryani.cooking rice can be tricky at times and to get the right texture needs some experience. Rice is a staple diet for most of India. One of the most versatile ingredient, it can be cooked as an entree, mains or a desert.In many cultures, rice is considered to be an auspicious symbol of life and fertility.
