Mint flavoured dishes are always mouth-watering and yummy. We generally use mint leaves even when we prepare yummy juices because of its wonderful flavour. Mint flavoured Pulao are instant and simple to make. In my childhood days, my mom used to make simple mint rice without masala and pack my lunch but mint pulao is much more tastier than the plain mint rice. Mint (Pudina) Pulao served with any raitha would make the meal richer.
