  1. Pulao looks yummylicious! Broccoli used to be one of those veggies I USED to detest. After coming to know about its anti-cancerous properties I have come to love it and respect it! Its certainly an acquired taste and this veggie in a pulao must be delicious. But Vangi Bhath flavoring? Very New!
