One of my friend made this yummy no onion no garlic Mint Coriander Leaves Pulao for a pooja. It was so yummy. Whenever, we do pulao, we usually add onion and garlic. But this mint coriander leaves pulao tasted so good without onion and garlic. With mild spices and rich aroma of mint and coriander leaves gives a good flavour to the pulao. When I make plain mint rice, my kids are not that much interested. But they enjoyed this Mint-coriander Pulao so much. Relish with your favourite Raitha and curry!!!

  2. Hi Subbulakshmi amma, This recipe looks easy and quick to be made. I'm a beginner to cooking, so just wanted to know if this needs to be prepared using pressure cooker what would be the exact amount of water to be used to get fluffy rice without sticking to each other?

    1. Hi Mathangi, We can add 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice and allow for 1 whistle. Then keep the flame very low and cook for 15 minutes in low flame.
