Pudhina Pulao / Mint Pulao | Pulao Recipes


Pudhina Pulao or mint pulao, is one of my favorite. It is easy to prepare recipe at the morning time and just a normal onion raita goes well with it. I just love the smell which surrounds the house, when the mint pulao is getting ready. This smell itself makes me hungry most of the time.

Ingredients

  • Basmati Rice - 3 cups
  • Water - 4.5 cups + 1/4th cup
  • Mint leaves - 1 bunch
  • Coriander leaves - a handful
  • Onion - 1 big (cut lenthwise)
  • Green Chillies - 4
  • Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Ghee - 2 tsp

To Temper

  • Oil - 3tsp
  • Cinnamon Stick - 1 crushed
  • Star anise - 2
  • Bayleaves - 1 (crushed)
  • Fennel Seeds - 1/4 tsp
  • Cloves - 3 to 4
  • Cardamom - 1


Method

  • Soak the rice for 20 to 30 min.


  • Wash the Mint leaves.

  • In a mixer grinder/food processor, add the mint leaves and green chilies and with little water (1/4th cup), make a paste.


  • In a pressure cooker, add oil and the ingredients under Temper, one by one and fry for a min.


  • Add the Onion and fry till translucent.


  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes off.


  • Add the mint paste and salt and cook for 5 min approx.


  • Add the soaked rice and water.


  • When the water starts boiling, close the cooker lid (no need to put weight), and keep in low flame.
  • After 10 to 12 min, slowly open the lid and add the ghee. 
  • Switch off the flame.


  • Mix gently and again close for another 5 min.
  • Serve hot with raita.
