Mushroom Mint Pulao is an awesome and simple rice preparation made with mushroom, spices and basmati rice cooked together flavoured with fresh flavours of mint leaves. The flavours from the garam masala, browned onions and heat from green chillies makes this dish mildly spiced but is overwhelmed with the fragrance of fresh mint leaves giving a nice freshness to the aromatic basmati rice.

There are various versions of making the pulao, but as mushrooms actually has a bland taste hence they are sautéed in ghee along with whole garam masala, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cashew nuts, onions, green chillies and mint leaves to get that extra aroma and punch. This dish is simple to prepare yet very appetizing and with the right mix of spices, fresh herbs and rice cooked together makes it an extremely scrumptious and delectable dish as all the flavours from the aromatic spices infuse into the mushrooms and rice giving the pulao a perfect zest.

Pulao Pulao or Pilaf is a very popular rice preparation where aromatic rice is cooked in a seasoned broth.  Sometimes while preparing the pulao, the rice may also attain a brownish colour by being stirred with cooked onions and large mix of spices. Depending on the local cuisine or your choice, you can add meat, seafood, vegetables and dried fruits in the pulao. It is a staple food and a national dish in Afghan, Uzbek, Tajik and Bukharan Jewish cuisines.

Pulao is cooked in various ways and cooking styles in different regions. In south Asia, pulao consists of commonly ingredients that include peas, potatoes, French beans, carrots, mutton or chicken. It is usually served during special occasions and weddings. Meat pulaos is a popular dish among the Muslim population. Pulaos are generally prepared on weekends so that the whole family can enjoy a mouth-watering meal. It is also considered as a fantastic wholesome one pot meal and for office goers, easy to carry in the lunch boxes.

Mint or Pudina leaves Mint is one of the most aromatic herbs used in Indian cooking. Fresh mint leaves has a powerful aroma and scent that engulfs the entire area around you with its minty fragrance. It is extensively used in most Indian kitchens to impart its flavours and zest into the appetizing dishes. Mint has a sweet flavour, with a cooling after-sensation.

Cooking is not about correct measurements everytime, once u start learning, u know the tastes and what you like and what you do not, and water and rice is all that one checks about measurements. So observe, study and then you wil never see 10gms this
