Cashew Coconut Milk Pulao

We love briyani during anytime of the day, obviously i will definitely make biriyani atleast twice a month especially on week-ends. Most of our Sunday lunch will be either biriyani or pulao. Served along with a rich, creamy curry or side dish, one can finish their lunch or dinner happily without any fuss. I have already dished out couple of pulao and my space have varieties of pulao cooked either with vegetables, seafoods or meats. However my today's recipe is one of easiest pulao one can dish out quickly without any hassle. Even if you ran out of vegetables or meats, this dish will make everyone happy as this dish is full of flavors. With a handful of cashewnuts, garam masala and homemade coconut milk is quite enough to prepare this pulao.

Am running this week's blogging marathon with Dish under 30 minutes as theme. After two delicious dishes which takes hardly less than 30 minutes to get ready, here comes an another one pot meal with my favourite nuts aka cashew. Cashew nuts makes this simple pulao more rich with their incredible nuttiness, be generous to add cashewnuts while making this pulao. And to bring the flavor to this pulao, the soaked basmati rice is cooked completely with thick homemade coconut milk. Needless to say that this pulao will definitely please anyone's tastebuds easily than you can imagine. You can also add a mixture of nuts to make this same pulao even more richer. Enjoy this pulao with some rich paneer or chicken based curries as side dish.
