CHANNA PULAO RECIPE

PULAO MADE WITH CHICK PEAS.

A very simplest way of making pulao, which i started making for my daughter when she was 3 years old. She is a big fan of chick peas. Now a days, though i make this once  a week  for her lunch box, in the morning hurry i never had a chance to take stepwise pictures. Somehow i managed to click this today and here comes the recipe for a Simple and Delicious Channa Pulao.
