Pyaz Pulao (Onion Puloa)

Onion pulao taste truly wonderful and its one among the quick rice dish I do quite often at home, because they need very less ingredients... I learnt this recipe from my Muslim neighbor friend. The taste of the onion pulao was just heavenly.


Basmat rice – 2 cups
Onion – 6-8 pcs
Green chilli – 2
Sugar – 4 tbsp
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Cumin powder – 2 tsp
Ginger paste – 1 tsp
Nutmeg powder - 1/4 tsp
Cashew nuts – a handful
Raisin – a handful
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Refine oil – 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

For Tempering –

Dry red chilli – 1 or 2
Bay leaves - 2
Whole Garam masala – 2 cloves, 2 cardamoms, 1'' cinnamon stick

Method :

Pick, wash and soak the rice in about 3 cups of water for 20-30 mins. Drain and keep aside to dry.

Heat ghee and refine oil in a pressure cooker, when the fragrance comes out, add the bay leaves,whole garam masala. Fry until the aroma spreads, then add chopped onion, fry until golden brown in medium flame.

Add the rice, cashew, raisin and mix well with the spices.

Add the turmeric, ginger, sugar, salt and fry for a few minutes. The rice starts getting aromatic with the nutmeg and ginger. Then add 4 cups of water and cover with the lid and pressure cook on low heat until 2 whistles. Switch off the gas pulao is ready.

Serve hot with Angara chicken .
