  • Notes:
        1. While making pulao try not to mix the rice more than two times as the rice 
            grains tend to break & you won't get nice long grain pulao.
        2. I tried by adding the soya chunks separately. You can add the cooked soya
            chunks in the curry. OR As the soya chunks is cooked separately just saute 
            in small quantity of oil,salt & red chilli powder & then add to the pulao. 
        3. So,do try this recipe & let me know if you tried by sauting the soya chunks
