How to make Potato Pulao | Lunch box recipes | Easy Pulao Recipes

Potato pulav

I always love Pulao and try different Pulao by changing the veggies. I love the smell of basmati rice cooked in mild spiciness but with great aroma and unbeatable taste. My kid is a potato lover and asked me to try this Potato Pulao. Even my little one ate as this is very mild in spiciness. You can try different pulao recipes from here and some I have given below.

Tasty and Easy Potato Pulao is ready... I had it with Paneer Butter Masala...

1. Always saute the potato for 5 min, before cooking, so that the potato will be cooked nicely. This is done, as we are not going to cook the rice in high flame.
