Zafrani Pulao - Hyderabad Style

A very elegant and delicious pulao.. There are different kinds of the zafrani pulao - one is sweet and other is spicy.. I was in no mood for a sweet rice preparation. So I chose the savory version from here that I had bookmarked and served it with a Paneer dish. This is my choice for Z – Regional
