Pulao refers to rice cooked in a meat or vegetable stock flavoured with spices. Every household has its own special recipe for making this dish. Lamb pulao is very popular in Pakistan, it's also very healthy because you need to boil the lamb with garam masala for at least 4-5 hours to extract the true flavour out of the ingredients.

This type of rice is also a good option for those people who don't like too much spicy because it's devoid of red chillies. Basmati is the best type of rice to use in this recipe. Unlike biryani the stock is prepared first and then the rice is cooked in it till tender and fluffy.
