4 cups of water
3 cinnamon sticks
2 tsps turmeric powder 4 chicken bullion cubes 1 tbsp oil
2 cups of rice
1/4 kg peas
Put one tablespoon of oil in a vessel, fry cinnamon sticks and cloves for a bit. Then add the cardamoms and onions and fry the onions till they become transparent. Add the tomatoes and fry for a bit before adding the bullion cubes. Fry till they mix well with all the ingredients. Then wash the rice and add turmeric powder to it. Add this rice to the pan slowly and stir all the while. Mix this well and then add the water and the peas. Cover the pan and wait till the water gets dried up and the rice is cooked. Serve hot with a chicken curry or a vegetable raitha. You can also add some raisins, pineapple slices and carrots for a sweet and crunchy texture. Chicken pulao also goes well with Goan sausages and is a favourite dish in the state along with Choriz Pao. Another variation of the chicken pulao is adding fried cocktail sausages to it.
