Meethi Pulao. I love greens and make it a point to prepare all kind of green vegetables at least 4 to 5 days a week as I strongly believe that we are what we eat. I always prefer the mini meethi leaves which are available here very easily, this mini meethi leafs perfect for a meal rather than those huge bunches which give me a headache when it comes to cleaning!! This is a simple and flavorful pulao made in jiffy and perfect for lunch box also. Nowadays i'm giving more rice items for my hubby in a lunch box, so that even i can get a chance to cook different differnt kinds rice items. Because it is easy to prepare to and delicious to eat...
