  1. Instead of grinding coconut and coriander and extracting the juice, you can grind little coriander and 1 green chili and add 1 cup of thin coconut milk to the pulao.
  2. As we are discarding the ground paste and using the juice only, you can add 3 chilies for 1 cup rice. It was medium spicy only.
  3. You can add some roasted cashew nuts in the last just before serving.
  4. You can add potato, paneer or carrots to the pulao along with peas.
  5. Few mint leaves can be added while grinding to enhance the flavour.
