Coconut Pulao/White Pulao

Am a person who love to dish out easy breezy dishes whenever am in hurry or lazy to cook. If you go through my space, you can definitely see varieties of one pot meals and many more easy dishes which gets ready in less than 15-20minutes. Actually i love to spend most my leisure time in my kitchen but i dont take too much of my time to cook, sometimes i make cook three or four dishes simultaneously as i dont have much time to spend in my kitchen or in cooking during my week days. For the past 5months, am cooking like a mad during weekends as i want to prepare few dishes just to keep my space alive before the weekend gets finished. Obviously i go for quick and easy one pot meals for our lunch. One among those quick one pot meal is this coconut pulao or white pulao. This dish is my young one's favourite, trust me this dish is very quick to make and gets ready easily in pressure cooker.

You can just serve this mildly spicy and flavourful pulao to anyone as this dish doesnt go for ginger garlic paste or any specific masala powder. Wholespices and slit opened green chillies gives the flavour and the spiciness to this dish. You can serve this dish very well during a get together or else as a weekend special with a rich side dish. Am running my fourth week of blogging marathon and the theme of this week is Kid's delight- Colourful dish, as this white pulao is my kid's most favourite, am posting this dish under this theme. Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#49.
