You recipes are so good
i have a very big doubt..is it possible for u to explain how to cook basmati rice...its not coming properly it will be better if u tel me step by step
Thanks in advance
I usally wash and soak the rice for about 10 minutes. Then add water in the ratio 1:1.5 i.e 1.5 cups of water for 1 cup of rice and cook it on stove top or rice cooker. When making pulao or biriyani, you can also fry the rice in some ghee or oil before cooking. This will ensure that the grains of rice are seperate.

is it compolsary to soak the rice
Hi Gunjan. Its not compulsory to soak the rice. But soaking improves the texture of the final pulao.

hi, can coconut milk be optional?if yes what is the substitute of that?
Yes. Coconut milk can be skipped. In that case use only water to cook the rice. Use 1 1/2 cups water for 1 cup of rice.

Hi dahlia, is green peas need to be soaked??
i used frozen peas. so i used it as such without soaking. but if u use dried ones, u have to soak.... fresh peas need not be soaked either.
