Simple & Quick Chicken Pulao


          This is my version of a simple homemade style chicken pulao. You can term it as a satisfactory one-pot meal that can be enjoyed with raita and salad. It is basically a quick fix pressure cooker meal on those days when laziness takes over or when time is a constraint. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare this no-frills delicacy.
