KASHMIRI PULAO RECIPE

Easy to make restaurant style Kashmiri pulao with step by step pictures

Kashmiri pulao is unlike the normal pulao recipes will not be spicy. Even when we go to restaurants also we never order this kashimir pulao as it will be slightly sweet. But i have tasted this in parties and buffets. This recipe was asked by a reader of mine and i tried this in a restaurant last weekend and somehow incorporated the same taste at home. A friend of mine also gave me few tips on the recipe of Kashmiri pulao.
This kashmiri pulao can be had with spicy curry especially with  Paneer based gravies.

Note:

  • You can add finely chopped pineapple or grapes to this.
  • Do not reheat after adding fruits.
  • If you want to make it very rich you can add cream instead of water while cooking.(just replace 1/2 cup of cream for 1/2 cup of water). do not add too much else it will be very heavy and u cannot even eat more than 4-5 spoons.

jeyashree
sorry for the delay…i need to know we have to add in proportion water n milk…becos for basmati rice….less water s needed….or can i add more milk n reduce water.thanks.

Reply
admin January 23, 2013 - 2:05 pm

The proportion rice to water is 1 : 1 and 1/4 cup. If you are adding 3/4 cup of milk for 1 cup of rice, then add 1/2 cup of water. Hope it cleared your doubt. Need any clarification feel free to ask

hi jeya.. I already tried this at home. It will be awesome if we add pineapple, apple and grapes. we can make it little bit spicy by adding cooked paste of green chillies, ginger, garlic and masala.
