Looks great. What kind of pulao would you best recommend to serve with this? Thank you...
Sorry, I've commented a lot today because I'm trying to put together a week's worth of recipes to try. :-)

How long do you boil?
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (March 2, 2014)
Boil for 3-5 minutes, then simmer the gravy till oil separates and the gravy thickens.
