A very simple subtle flavoured Pulao, which only has the flavour of saffron, indeed our family favourite. A rich gravy truely complements this rice dish.
Basmathi rice ( washed and soaked in water for 1/2 an hour ) – 1 cup
Saffron – 2 big pinches
Salt to taste
Water – 1 and 3/4 cup
Oil – 1 tablespoon
Ghee – 1 tablespoon
Shahjeera – 1/2 teaspoon
Heat a pan. Add 1 and 3/4 cup water. When the water boils, add the saffron. Cover and leave it aside.
Heat a big pan. Season. Add the drained rice and salt to taste. Sauté on sim flame for 5 minutes. Add the saffron water. Mix well. Cover and cook till done. Mix gently. Serve hot with Khoya Kaju.
1) Cook the rice on sim flame, so that it will not discolour.
2) Leave the Pulao as it is. Do not add any veggies or any extra spices.
