Tahari Pulao

Tahari yes you’ll hear me  correct and today i would love to share Hyderabadi Cuisine, perfect meal over weekend Tahari is similar to briyani but tahari is Jiffy.

This Pulao was so delectable, juicy and tender meat relished every bit,  well have to be a bit careful while  adding water in rice incase of too much water it will not keep the rice loose. This Pulao was aromatic the whole home.

We just relsih every bite of pulao and thank to my dearie friend Nasreen Banu for this beautiful recipe and enjoyed while preparing this beautiful Tahari Pulao.
