Spicy Egg Pulao

Pulao is mainly a South Asian rice dish mainly famous in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Iran.It is same as the pilaf where rice is cooked in seasoned broth. Mainly in Eastern part of India where I live taste of pulao is bit sweet . One of the popular type of pulao is one with various vegetables and dry fruits like raisin and cashew. Today I try to move from the regular taste of the pulao and try to give it a spicy twist and believe me egg pulao comes out delicious. If you don’t like too much heat then you can adjust the use of chilies according to your choice. It is very simple and delicious and you can go for it any week night or weekend lunch.
