Hariyali Pulao (green Herb Rice)
A very aromatic rice with four green leaves- dill, coriander, mint and curry leaves. I feel it has all the Indian herbs from the North to South of India. It was introduced to me by my maid. I have made this pulao with potatoes and green peas though there is no rule regarding the use of veggies. It is the herbs that form the base for this pulao the choice of meat or veggies is optional. It is quite common to have this base for a biriyani in Bangalore which is not so common where I come from. Though there are four kinds of herbs, mint and coriander is higher in proportion and this balance should be maintained for the right flavour.
