A dish that is simple to make yet very royal and mesmerizing. A recipe which is a  mix of rich ingredients – Basmati rice cooked in a sweet and rich blend of Indian spices and nuts .  Zafrani Pulao is a stunningly flavorsome pulao recipe, with the essence of saffron. The name hence, Zafrani 🙂  This is  simple, easy and can be cooked in very less time. I did not use much nuts today as I wanted a simple rice dish for my Chicken curry .
