I tried this recipe couple of years ago,the pulao is very favourful not like usual ones.Yakhni means stock.The meat will be slow cooked in spices and the water which is used to cook the rice.A potli(small bag of spices) is made for the stock which is easy to remove the spices at the end.The pulao will look slight brown because of the brown onions.Its simple recipe.I have halved the ingredients since i made half portion only.
