Zafrani pulao recipe a mildly sweet pulao made with saffron and nuts as main ingredients. Full of sweetness and spice, with a little added crunch from the toasted cashews and pistachios. Saffron adds wonderful golden colour to this celebratory Kashmiri dish.
Bhai Dooj Prasad:
This pulao is a sweet pulao, we make this pulao on the auspicious occasion of Bhai dooj that comes one day after the light festival Diwali. Bhai Dooj, which is observed two days after Diwali, is celebrated to praise the bond between a brother and a sister. Also known as ‘Bhai Beej’ or ‘Bhai Tika’, Bhai Dooj has a lot of similarities with Raksha Bandhan. We use this as a prasad for Bhai dooj puja. However, this pulao is so tasty and flavourful that you can easily include it in any party menu as a dessert.
I always use long grain basmati rice to make zafrani pulao. Good quality saffron and cardamom gives the colour and aroma to this delectable rice dish.
We usually serve this rice after food as a dessert, but this can be consumed like a full meal too. If you have a sweet tooth like my husband then you can have it like a meal. You can pair up it with fresh malai or milk cream.
