Navrathna pulao recipe – mughlai rice recipe

This is a mughlai variety of rice which is quite rich and delicately spiced. I took the recipe from Tarla dalal’s joys of vegetarian cooking. It tasted great and the aroma was simply superb and the frangrance lasted for a long long time. Certainly will be liked by people who enjoy less spicy food.
