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...

            Matar Pulao Recipe

            Matar Pulao is a great combination of veggies and rice, very simple and easy to make hardly takes 30 minutes to be fully prepared, this is a traditional, aromatic and flavoured rice recipe, This mildly flavoured rice dish is known as matar pulao or pea pulao and it is so easy to make. 

            The caramelized onions, aromatic spices and the sweetness from the peas make this bowl of rice taste a little extra special.

            Matar Pulao is one such recipe, which I make so often because it goes so well with many of our Pakistani and Indian Recipes, and  I love the simplicity of matar pulao and the beauty of a few ingredients that result in such a scrumptious, soul-satisfying meal.

            I already have a recipe for making perfect plain white basmati rice on the blog, but I wanted to share this pea pulao with you too because the truth is that most of the time, I make this pea pilaf over plain rice. That’s because it’s easy to make, tastes great and makes a simple meal feel a touch more elaborate.

            Really though, you can serve this pea pulao in any meal where you’d serve plain basmati rice. Serve it with chicken korma or masala muttongreen chillies curry or bagara baingan, the options are literally endless. so let's begin
