Coriander Soya Pulao

One pot meals are always prefect for lunch. Either its a sunday's lunch or a week day's lunch,one pot meal are really easy to get ready and prefect to serve for a get together. Coming to today's coriander soya pulao, this pulao goes for an easy preparation with the aromatic herb aka coriander leaves. To add the nutritional value of this pulao, i simply went for the protein rich soya chunks for making this one pot meal. If you want to make this pulao with meats, just go with lean meats like chicken or else with prawns.

Aromatic coriander soya pulao suits prefectly for a sunday brunch, i served this rice with a simple potato kurma and we just enjoyed thoroughly our lunch. Its 4th sunday of the month and since i belong to a group of friends who blogs on sunday for the event Let's Brunch On Sundays am posting this incredible delicious pulao.
