can we use chicken powder to make yakhni and add it to the rice or we are required to do exactly instructed in the recipe? I am like a fan of yakhni pulao and keep looking for ways to make it even better and tastier. and also easy to make it. I was also looking for its recipe by zubaida aapa. Is there any one to give me this recipe?
