    Hi aysh,
    Pulav means chicken / vege cooked along with rice as a single process.Biryani means we cook rice separately and dum it on top of cooked/ uncooked chicken.I hope i cleared ur doubt.
    bye,

    Thanks preethi for the wonderful chicken Pulav Reicpe....i have a question to clear in the proceedure.....You have mentioned "put a bowl" that is after adding the remaing criander n pudina leaves.

    Does this mean to close the lid....before covering the wet kitchen cloth.

    Pls reply to me shalu.aqua@gmail.com

    Love,

    Shalini.

    Hi,

    Great recipe.
    I tried and it came out so good.

    One question. Usually at the roadside places in Andhra, the pulao is served with some sort of gravy/sauce.

    Can you tell me how to make this?
    I have seen an image of this gravy at the end of this video:
    http://www.vahrehvah.com/Andhra+Chicken+Pulao:4352

    but don't know how to make it.

    Thanks
