I had been making this Spinach and Carrots Pullao dish on the stove top for a long time when I saw a book on Microwave cooking…looks like someone had read my mind AND my prayers had been answered!! Wow! The results were amazing! Now, I make it more often and my family just loves this Pullao/Pullav/ Pulav. The best part…I don’t have to hover around the stove and after we have relished it, I have only 1 dish to clean. You gotta LOVE it!
