• The meat has to be tender. Which means the bird has to be lesser than one kilo. Then the flavours would be properly absorbed.

• The pieces should be slightly big for the Pulao.

• If you soak the Chicken in salt water for about half an hour before cooking, the meat becomes soft.

• If the Chicken is fried on high flame, the water will evaporate and the piece would be cooked. So it should be fried until it loses its moisture completely.

Basmati Rice:

• People usually ask me what brand Basmati Rice I use. And I always answer that I use Rice that is older than one year. There are many good brands in the market. All noted brands have good quality Rice.

• Rice will cook well if it is washed thoroughly and soaked for 30 minutes.

• If you are making Chicken Pulao with Basmati Rice in a Pressure Cooker, then water is sufficient in the ratio of 1:1 1/2

• If it is Sona Masuri Rice you are using, then the water should be in 1:2 ratio.

How to get the Rice in Pulao to be non-sticky and fluffy:

• The Basmati Rice should be older than one year.

• Basmati/Sona Masuri whatever the Rice you choose, it has to be soaked for 30 minutes.

• Basmati Rice gets cooked on high flame within two whistles. Sona Masuri needs 2 whistles on high flame and 1 whistle on sim.

• Once the whistles are done, switch off the stove and leave it for 20 minutes. Then if you turn it over with a flat spoon gently, the grains come off intact without breaking.


• The Pulao I am making has medium spices. You could adjust salt and spice as per your taste.
