Reviewing Pulao Masalas: The Rice of Royals

I found Shan Punjabi Yakhni Pulao to be very flavorful. The spices are very fresh, and it was cooked perfectly. I would definitely recommend this Pulao Masala to anyone looking for a flavorful, but not too spicy option.

Pulao is a delicious delicacy that originated in the Mughal era. This dish is typically made with rice and meat, but it can also be prepared with vegetables. In some cultures, Pulao is also cooked with dry fruits, which add a unique flavor and sweetness to this dish. It is usually served as a main course with a side of raita, and salad. This delicious dish is equally popular among adults and kids as it is mildly spiced and has balanced nutrients, loaded with good carbs from rice and proteins and fats from meat.

Pulao is a fan favorite in house, and is cooked once a week. I, being a working woman, always keep an eye for masalas which can make cooking easier for myself since it saves a lot of time, and energy. When I discovered Pulao masalas, I had to try them in my kitchen to always be quick, and on the go.
