Chicken Pilaf

Did I tell you that my sis has joined me home? SHe has just completed her professional course and is on for a break!! Thankfully, I have fallen sick and I am taking a much needed break. Oh, Woooww….!!Happy

I thought of making this pulao today! Well, this is not the traditional layered biriyani which takes so much of hardwork and time. This is a simple one, but delicious enough to go “Yummmmmmmmmmm…”!!
