Mushroom pulao

Posted by EsyRecipes Tuesday, December 15, 2009
Discripton:There is a subtle difference between the biryani and the pulao.In a biryani, the parboiled rice is layered twice or more between the spices and the meat, and they are all cooked together.
In a pulao, the stock of meat forms the base and the rice is cooked with the spices so that it absorbs the flavor of the spices. A pulao is like an assembly of cooked rice and meat.Pulao is made by the absorption method of cooking rice.Biryani is made by the draining method of cooking rice.In pulao the base ingredient is mixed with the rice, while in biryani the main ingredient is at the base of the vessel.In biryani lot of aromatic masala is used.
Pulaos are relatively less spiced.The other basic difference is that the Pulao has quite a bit of gravy in it whereas the biryani tends to be dry.
