Recipe Story

One of my friends suggested this recipe to me when I was looking to try out something new. She knows that very elaborate cooking is not my cup of tea. She had it in a restaurant, there is one restaurant in Bangalore famous for its variety in pulao and biryanis with sprouts. I still have to visit that place to get inspiration for more such recipes. But I thought of trying this one right away.

This recipe calls for very few ingredients and its a must try if you have the ingredients ready. It goes well with papad, curd or pickle.
