Pulav is mildly spiced. Add more chilly if you want it spicy.[br]I prefer using the mixture of oil and ghee for cooking pulav. You may use only ghee or clarified butter if you wish.[br]You can cook this in a rice cooker too. Follow steps upto 8 and then put it in the rice cooker, add water and salt and put it in power mode
