Pualv or flavored rice is a very popular dish in India. There are many variations to it. In north India the pualv is made using a lot of whole spices and dry fruits whereas in south India it is made using vegetables. I love making pulav using vegetables and whole spices. When I don’t have any specific menu for dinner or lunch, Onion and Mushroom pulav is the only dish I make to satisfy my hunger!
