Made this yummy pulav for Christmas lunch it went very well with Butter chicken And Mutton Korma.It tasted good too with the Stuffed chicken.The Carrots gave a lovely natural colour to this pulav & the dry fruits & milk added to the richness.

4-5 carrots grated
1/4 cup milk
dry fruits as needed
2 bay leaves
4-5 cloves
6-7 peppercorns
3-4 green cardamon
1 mace
2 star anise
1" Cinnamon stick
1 tbsp ghee.
salt to taste.

Wash the rice and soak it for 30 min.Drain the water and keep aside.

Heat ghee in a vessel and fry the nuts and keep aside.

In the same vessel add the bay leaves with the whole spices and saute for 2-3 min.

Now add the rice and fry well for 3-4 min.

Mix in the grated carrots and saute .
