  1. Interesting combo “Spring onion and Corn”. Perfect for lunch with raita or gravy. Never tried this. Will give a try soon. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. The pulao looks good and must be quite flavorful with all those ingredients going in. What caught my attention the most is, use of fennel seeds. I have never used fennel seeds in pulao, so very much interested to try it to see the effect. Will try it today itself 🙂
