Coconut Milk Pulao in Pressure Cooker

Coconut Milk Pulao in Pressure Cooker

Coconut Milk is prepared from grated coconut and is very popular in South Asian cuisine. Coconut milk will be mildly sweeter than cow's milk.  Coconut milk is used as milk substitute in baking by vegans.Coconut Milk Pulao or Coconut Milk pilaf is a less spicy rice dish. I prepared this recipe along with gobi manchurian. I will update the gobi manchurian recipe soon.

  3. Sometimes I feel with coconut milk, Asian dishes are like not complete. I use it quite often for my cooking too and I know how fabulous the creamy taste would have been in a pulao. And when there's also other interesting ingredients added inside, its so beautiful and inviting.
