Coriander and baby potato pulao, this delicious combination tastes fabulous when served just with potato chips..This pulao made with coriander paste and the already cooked potatoes cooked along with this coriander paste tastes yummy, also this pulao is quite an easy pulao to make out and i prepared this pulao in rice cooker, i just used a pan to saute the veggies and coriander paste and cooked everthing in rice cooker...As i used grated coconut for making out the coriander paste,i just skipped coconut milk for making out pulao and used beaten curd for preparing the rice part...Delicious pulao to enjoy and a prefect lunch box menu, tastes marvellous with simple raita or potato chips...This yummyilicious pulao goes to my own event Cooking With Seeds-Cardamom Seeds..
