pulao recipes are more beautiful than biryani recipes. Pulaos use cardamom and yakhni which makes it more fragrant. Chicken pulao is the best one, so I have been making it various times. However I will make it for the first time using a recipe.

yes i will make this chicken pulao and i hope it will give me a wondrous meal for all my family. It is easy to make and so everyone can make it without having past experience. Like me, I have no significant experience about cooking foods however I have just once read the recipe and I have understood whole the method.

nice pulao , it looks very tasteful in the picture and it must be in eating as well. I would try this myself. My wife is already very tired in making foods and performing household chores . As I have some idea about cooking, I would try to make it myself for whole family. It will be a surprise for my family.

pulau is very tasty. I don't know about pilaf but tell me is it the same thing or is it some other recipe? pilaf, pulao, pulau , i think these are the same things same like kabab and kebab and kabob. I think it is accent of speaking which differs in talking and spelling.

good good, it is a tasty pulao but i think it is same as yakhni pulao? isn't it? if it is different with yakhni pulao , then what is the difference between the both? i have made yakhni chicken pulao but not made a simple chicken pulao so i am looking into it . and see how to make it and how does it taste?
