One pot egg pulao for busy weeknights
To begin with, hard boil eggs. Peel them and toss in a spicy mixture of ground turmeric and red chili powder. Season with salt. Shallow fry until the eggs turn brown on all sides.
Now, to make the pulao, start with frying a few whole spices followed by sauteing onions and ginger garlic paste. Then, sauté tomatoes until they are mushy, and add a light touch of spices with ground turmeric and garam masala. A few tablespoons of yogurt will make this pulao super flavorful and delicious.
To this mixture, you can add soaked rice along with lemon juice and salt. Cover with enough water, and let it simmer until rice turns fluffy. Delicious! Top this pulao with fried eggs and plenty of coriander (cilantro) leaves.
