Rice dishes are staple in all cuisines but cooked in different styles. When it comes to my choice I like chicken pulao it is even good to feed large gatherings. You can easily increase its amount from double to triple.

When it comes to the color of the rice then I like brown-colored chicken pulao and it depends on the color of the fried onions. If the color of the onions is light then cooked pulao is white in color but when the color of the onions changes to brown then brown chicken pulao is cooked.

It is one of the tasty dishes of Pakistan. Serve this chicken pulao with Dahi/yogurt ka raita and with salad. Try this tasty and delicious spicy chicken pulao recipe from this easy method. Chicken pulao is cooked in two ways as kala pulao and white pulao. If it is cooked with red pepper it is called kala pulao. If it is cooked with red chili powder it is called white pulao. Both are yummy and tasty But here I am sharing a recipe for kala pulao.
