Kashmiri Pulao is a rice dish with a difference. It has veggies, crunchy nuts, crunchy onions, saffron and fruit. Everybody likes nuts but nobody at home likes raisins, not even, if it makes an authentic Kashmiri pulao. So I made my pulao without raisins. As for fruits, I did not want to add apple, pineapple or grapes (that are usually added), but took a chance with some pomegranate and it turned out just fine in fact quite different from other kinds of pulao, that I have made before.
Another thing I did different was to prepare a broth and use it instead of water to make the Pulao. The broth was simmered with spices for about 12 – 15 minutes and that added a nice flavorful touch.
