Jodhpuri Pulao | Rajasthani Pulao

Did you ever go Rajasthan? For me the answer is No. But Trust me I am very eager to go there. Just waiting for my Son's growing up. As there is so many places like Palace,Killa and many more which are very exciting for kids too.  So Hope after 2 years we are going to Visit Rajasthan. And hope you all know that Rajasthan has a really Rich culture in there foods. There spices and ingredients are really giving something different,which I like mostly. In my Childhood I had so many Rajasthani peoples as neighbors. From them I came to know the perfect taste of Rajasthani Cuisines.So one Marwari Dish I got from my aunt who itself is a Marwari. So Today sharing a purely Vegetable Pulao. Jodhpuri Pulao enriched with the flavor of Rajasthan,Dried fruits and Fresh Vegetables. Little sweet in taste . A perfect party choice for Vegetarian. With lots of nuts,dates and raisins make it perfectly Rich and Royal in Taste. No way to avoid it. In my family all members are Fan of this Pulao. Hope you will also like this...
