  • 6 Cashew Nuts 
  • 6 Almonds  
  • 6 Dried Grapes 
  • 1 tsp Green Peas (Optional)

Method of Preparation of Kashmiri Pulao

In a thick bottomed Kadai heat ghee and fry the cashew nuts and dried grapes and keep them aside. Now add and sauté cumin seeds, bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves to the remaining Ghee for a few minutes. Now add the rice to it and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Now close the lid and cook in low flame till the rice is cooked and grains are separate. Remove from fire and fluff the rice a little using a fork.
