I’m just a poor Biryani nobody loves me
I’m not sure if it’s just me but at least in India, pualo has always sort of been the poor man’s biryani. It’s also what biryani purists tell their vegetarian friends to call their “veg” biryani. The phrase ‘there is nothing like ve biryani, it’s called pulao’ has always made the pulao looked down upon. In fact in my opinion it’s probably something I prefer to biryani. It’s a one pot wonder that’s quick and easy to cook and full of flavour. Granted it’s not quite the royal feel of a biryani with layers of meat and rice and saffron and fried onions etc but it’s got it’s own bang for buck. Anyway enjoy the recipe.
What’s in a Biryani?
I’ve done a Keto Biryani recipe. Though my personal favourite is boneless mutton, I made it with chicken given how long it takes mutton to cook. It would require separate cooking and then pairing with the cauliflower rice. I digress, we’re talking pulao. You can make this any way you like. You can throw in veggies, paneer, some pork even, chorizo and you’ve got a meal fit for a king. One of my first cauliflower rice recipes was a chorizo pulao. Give that a try too.
