Mutton Pulao

Few days back I stumbled upon a food post of Mutton Pulao on my facebook group -

Home Chef's World Cuisines

which was posted by one of our member Mrs. Shailaja Keni. The first look itself made me ask for recipe. Mrs. Keni was very kind to quickly share the recipe.

There are many ways to prepare a quick pulao, but the specific one shared by Mrs. Keni is so flavorful with such minimal ingredients. The house is filled with a light aroma of ginger garlic and whole spices. I am sure today the lunch hosting is going to be relished by my guest :)

Sharing the recipe which is strongly recommended to try out and trust me, you will love the simplicity of making this dish and the lovely taste that comes of it as an end product.

My guest had verdict on the Pulao - "IT WAS YUM" I had packed some off too and it was gladly carried away :) Happy tummy happy all!
