How to make Misti Basanti pulao/Sweet yellow pulao

  2. Heat a pan with ghee, add cashews and raisin and fry it a little. Now add bay leaf, green cardamom, cinnamon and cloves.
  3. Once it develops a nice aroma, add rice, sugar, turmeric powder, salt to taste and give it a good stir.
  4. Add 3 and 1/2 cup of water and cover the pan. Keep it on a high flame for 5 mins, then reduce the flame to low and cook for 20-25 mins or until the rice (pulao) is cooked properly.
  5. Do not stir the pulao until it is cooled down to 30 -40%.
