My latest Video Masala Pulao:

Masala Rice is a combination of rice and leftover curry along with a few whole spices, fried onions, green chili, and tomato are added, it is the best meal for lunch or dinner
This rice is served with raitasalad, and kebabs but no need for any curry, so lets the go-ahead know how to cook masala rice 
  1. If your rice isn’t enough soaked then you use 1.5 cups of water for 1 cup of rice
  2. The water ratio depends on the rice quality
  3. 1 cup water for 1 cup soaked rice
  4. 1.5 cup water for 1 cup of unsoaked rice
  5. But can be increased/decreased ratio of water according to the rice quality
  6. Rice always is cooked on high heat for 3-4 minutes
  7. If your rice is getting wet/sticky then cover the dry kitchen towel over the pot and simmer for 10 minutes
  8. And if rice remains uncooked don't make the mistake of adding water otherwise your rice will be sticky and mushy 
  9. Just cover the wet kitchen towel over the pot then place a lid over a kitchen towel and let it simmer for 10 minutes
  10. Your rice will be set
  11. If you are using chicken stock instead of water even then the same ratio will be used in stock
  12. Like 1 cup of stock for 1 cup of rice 
  13. put 1/2 tsp white vinegar during cooking rice it won't stick to each other ever...
