Mutton Pulao is a one pot dish, which is a delicacy in many households, especially during festivals. Unlike Biryani, which is prepared by layering rice and meat, Pulao is prepared by mixing rice and meat.

I prepare Mutton Pulao whenever I’m too lazy to prepare an elaborate meal. Combine it with some Raita and you’re good to go 🙂  You may use Basmati Rice or Seeraga Samba/Jeera Rice to prepare this Pulao. Also you may prepare pulao with any meat of your choice.
