Berry Pulao

My Navroz recipe sharing will not be complete if I don’t share Berry Pulao recipe. Out of all the three recipes of Akuri, Patrani Machhi and Berry Pulao, I prepared, my favourite has been Berry Pulao. It’s a sweet Pulao and I loved it. So different in taste from our Basanti Pulao #MadhusKitchen #Navroz #foodie #thekolkatabuzz
