Tahari Pulao

Tahari yes you’ll hear me correct and today I would love to share Hyderabadi Cuisine, the perfect meal over the weekend Tahari is similar to briyani, this pulao was so delectable, juicy and tender meat relished every bit, we’ll have to be a bit careful while adding water in rice in case of too much water it will not keep the rice loose. This Pulao was aromatic at my whole home while cooking.
This pulao was so delicious with all the spices and with the mutton was amazing, it can also be made with vegetables, and, its colour is so delightful, the spice was amazing while having the pulao all the flavour was blasting in the mouth, with the mint raita, was to the next level. I have enjoyed it with my family and they approved this amazing recipe, do give it a try and relish it with your family.
