Chole Pulao (chickpea Rice)
This was an accidental discovery. I make a lot of lentils and legumes these days and after my chickpea cutlet I was still left with a lot of chickpeas. I did not want to make rice and curry so I thought I would give a twist to the chole by making a pulao out of it. While I was half way through cooking, I surfed online and found interesting versions for the same dish but I stayed loyal to my inspiration. This is a cross between my recipe on hariyali pulao and my biriyani recipe. I was generous with my use of herbs and everyone home agreed it tasted delicious. It was a Friday afternoon meal and I am extremely relaxed on Friday afternoon after my orders for the week so I believe this was an exceptional meal for the same reasons.
