  • How to Make Green Garlic Pulao:

    1. Peel and roughly chop one large onion, peel and chop ginger and garlic, chop green chillies.
    2. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a kadai. When hot, add in the following order: green chilli, ginger, onion, garlic. Fry well till garlic turns brown and a nice aroma fills the air. Let it cool.
    3. Wash the coriander leaves and roughly chop. Grind to a paste with the fried garlic-onion mixture.
    4. In the kadai, saute the chopped vegetables and mix the garlic paste. Add a little extra salt and a little water if required, let it cook for 10 minutes.
    5. Cover and leave aside. You should allow this mixture to marinate for at least 3 hours.
    6. Mix this vegetable mixture with 2.5 cups of washed basmati rice 30 minutes before serving.
    7. Add 2 cups water, check for salt and cook (in a rice or a pressure cooker) till done.
    8. Mix well and garnish with either fried onions or bread croutons or both.
    9. This goes very well with a vegetable korma made with the same vegetables, capsicum and a little bit of the garlic paste cooked in coconut milk and curds.
