Onion pulao


Onion pulao is a very easy recipe made using simplest of ingredients with the Organic Biryani Rice by Planet Organic. This dish can be prepared in 15 minutes and goes perfect with multiple curries and dal. It is even good on its own, just pair it with some pickle, raita and papad. If you are in a hurry then pressure cooker can be used to save time, however, cooking it in a kadai gives the best results. They have wide range of organic products available at the best price.
