Pulao

This is my own kind of pulao.One morning when i was running short of time i tried out this method and it became a big hit.It is slightly easier than the briyani where you have to grind the masalas.It is more like a spiced rice.Let me tell you how i made this.I have used one and half cups rice which should be enough for four to five people.

Onion
2
Tomato
