Andhra style vegetable pulao/pulav is a fragrant and rich rice dish made of most Andhra Pradesh homes. The combination of whole spices along with mint leaves and a paste made of dry coconut, cashews, khus-khus among other ingredients make this pulao/pulav flavoursome and gives this dish a delectable taste. The creaminess of cashews and the sweetness of dry coconut make this pulao very different from other pulao and is one of my favourite rice dishes. Every home has their own pulao recipe and there are varieties of pulao also. This pulao is a one pot satisfying meal with a lot of flavour and taste. Andhra pulao can be served for both lunch or dinner with raitha. Andhra pulao can also be served with any chicken or mutton/lamb curry.
