This quick and easy chicken and brown rice pulao is a dish of Indian cuisine. It’s aromatic and mildly flavored with spices. It’s perfect main dish, I have given a healthy touch to this by adding brown rice, instead of white rice. This chicken pulao is an attempt of making the traditional pulao more healthy and nutritious without impacting the taste.

  • Heat ghee, add 1 tsp of zeera.
  • Once it starts crackle, add ginger garlic paste & roast it for 2-3 minutes.
