    i am a fan of ur site. i tried ur veg fried rice, orange chicken & chilli fish during xmas was wonderful. i would like to know the exact difference between fried rice ,pulao and biriyani?

    Thanks for letting me know about it,Gayatri.
    And about your question regarding the differences between pulao,biriyani & fried rice, I’ve found a well explained article in and it states..
    “PULAO IS made by the absorption method of cooking rice. Biryani is made by the draining method of cooking rice. Fried Rice is a Chinese preparation which is made in a wok using Chinese spices and pre-cooked rice. In pulao the base ingredient is mixed with the rice, while in biryani the main ingredient is at the base of the vessel. In biryani lot of aromatic masala is used. Pulaos are relatively less spiced.”

    Hope this helps

  6. I’m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you’ve got hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
