EGG(roasted) PULAO

Two days ago,I received a call from home that my sister was blessed with a baby boy..I wished to be beside her at this precious moment.But miles chances of meeting very soon as of now..For a while,memories flew back and remembered all at home.
Anyways,those are the times when you actually feel we are away from our native and all our dear ones too.. The best part is that technology has advanced to such an extent that we pretend ourselves to be close to them always :-)
Back to the recipe part,Egg pulao ..I used the regular rice ,and prepared this pulao.I usually prepare it when am short of time.The new twist to this recipe is that I just coated the hard boiled eggs with a coat and roasted them,an additional flavouring.This can be relished with a nice raita.No additional curries and side dishes easy way to close kitchen soon!!

Regular rice 2 cups (3/4 th cooked)
onion  1 chopped
tomato 2 chopped
green chilli 3 chopped
ginger paste 1tsp
garlic paste 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2tsp
garam masala 1 tsp
chilly powder 1tsp
pepper powder 1/2tsp
coriander powder 1tsp
cilantro 1/3 cup
raisins and cashew 1/2 cup
ghee 3tsp
oil 3tsp

for coating
eggs hard boiled 4-5
corn flour 2tsp
chilly powder 1/2tsp
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
garam masala 1/4 tsp
ghee 3tsp

  • Cook the rice 3/4th as per your routine with salt,drain water and keep aside.
  • Heat ghee in a pan ,fry the raisins and cashews .Keep aside.
  • In the mean time ,make a paste with the above ingredients to coat the de shelled eggs.
  • Roast the eggs till golden brown and keep aside.
  • Add oil into the pan and saute onion till 6 minutes.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and saute.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes.
  • Put all the spices and mix well until a nice aroma comes.
  • Adjust salt ,cover and cook till the tomatoes are fully mashed.
  • Mix the rice to this mixture and cover it up for another 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with cilantro and fried cashew,raisins.
  • Serve with the roasted eggs and raita.
Servings 4 adults


- You can use biriyani rice as well.
-If you are short of time,delete the coating of eggs.

Thanx for viewing my recipe,
