Pulao with pearl onions tastes truly marvellous and its one among the quick rice dish i do quite often at home,coz they need very few ingredients..This pulao goes for a simple spice powder with some scrambled paneer and shallots cooked along with rice,they doesnt need any paste or either coconut milk..Quite a quick pulao gets ready in less time also gets finished in less time,if u r bored of ur usual vegetable pulao or ghee rice,u have to give a try to this wonderful looking pulao..Its our favourite pulao which i never failed to make whenever i get pearl onions from the Indian grocery..
