When i chosed Regional foods for this week's theme of this month's long blogging marathon, immediately my mind went for Jal jeera or jeera pulao for the letter 'J', but since this both dishes are quite common in Indian cuisine i dont want to make them, while googling i find out an incredible sweet rice from Rajasthani cuisine. Yes,i got to know about this Jaipuri Mewa Pulao, which is quite unknown for me. I checked for the recipe and i landed to Priya's space, trust me its love at first sight. Seriously the recipe goes for simple ingredients and who else will miss a chance to give a try to this delicious nuts pilaf.
Jaipuri mewa pulao aka Jaipuri Nuts pilaf goes for rice,sugar,milk,ghee and mixed nuts with few strands of saffron. An easy, very nutty and an aromatic sweet rice which sounds much more like Zarda rice, eventhough this dish is quite different from it.If you want to make a different dessert in very less time for a get together,dont forget to give a try to this fantabulous pulao, am sure you will get more appreciations and applauses for serving this delicious pulao to your friends and relatives.Sending to my own event CWS-Rice guest hosted by Shruti Dhingra Wahi of Shurti Rasoi.
