Achaar Chole Pulav | Achaari Chana Pulav | Achaari Chickpeas Rice

I think it seems a long time has taken whereas I did not post any rice recipe . Yesterday night I prepared something scrumptious rice recipe which made our dinner just luscious . But trust me, there was not any planning to make it. I just boiled some chickpeas and was thinking what to do within short periods for dinner? An got the idea from my husband that "make that chickpeas pulao what you made once." And that's it. I prepared delicious Achaari Chickpeas Pulao . So thinking to share with you of-course .

Achaari Chole Pulav an exotic rice recipe from Punjab . A pickle flavored rice with chickpeas gives a special touch to your dinning ! I love pickle a lot. And if it is mixed with rice , then there is nothing else for enlightening me. Though as per my knowledge , the mango pickle paste is the secret ingredient of this delectable preparation, but I used mixed pickle here . So choice of pickle flavor is yours . And a special add on (Sahi garam masala) makes it perfect traditional delicacy like a style of Punjabi dhaba. Serve rice with any kind of raita.
