Mint n Babycorn Vermicelli Pulao

16:28 Niloufer Riyaz 16 Comments

Was in a mood to cook something different. Had babycorns in fridge n remembered bookmarking Babycorn Pulao from Priya's blog, she really has a wonderful collection of recipes. But wasnt in a mood to make rice, so wanted to try this recipe but with a change instead of rice I made this pulao with vermicelli, n I added cumin seeds( I always love to add Cumin seeds in my dishes) The vermicelli pulao was so tasty n the minute I fried the masala the aroma of the mint n other spices filled my house, really aromatic. This pulao was something different from what I used to make. next time i plan to make this pulao with paneer n mixed vegetables.
Sending this aromatic vermicelli pulao to Nupur's Blog- bites#3- adaptation  and to CWS- cumin seeds guest hosted by Sara event by Priya
