JAIPURI MEWA PULAO (Dry Fruit Pulao)

Rice grains are very delicate and it is crucial that they do not break during cooking. Stirring, preferably with a fork, is must.

Ingredients

  • Rice, long grained, Basmati (2 cups)
  • Sugar (2 cups)
  • Desi ghee (1 cup)
  • Buchananian Lazan (chironji), coarsely ground (1/2 cup)
  • Almonds (badam) (10 to 15)
  • Pistachio (pista) (10 to 15)
  • Cardamom (elaichi), powder (1 tsp)
  • Nutmeg (jaiphal), powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Saffron (kesar), soaked in 1 tsp milk (5 to 6 strands)
  • Milk (2 cups)

Method

  • Wash and then soak rice in water for about two hours. Then, drain the water from the rice.
  • Heat ghee in a kadhai and add the drained rice and milk to it.
  • Cover and cook on low fire, stirring occasionally but gently so that the rice grains do not break.
  • As soon as the rice is cooked, add elaichi and jaiphal powder, dry fruits, sugar and saffron.
  • Mix well. Let it cook on low flame with a lid on, till each grain has fluffed up. Serve Jaipuri Mewa Pulao hot as a sweet dish.
