Paalak pulao has been made by many, even aaloo pulao has been made earlier but what i did in this was to use both of these awesome veggies to give rise to my new innovative idea. A tasty and a easy pulao to enjoy at lunch or dinner with your loved ones. With the addition of potatoes, kids will also love it and most importantly, feeding this green magical veggie loaded with vitamins and minerals to the kids becomes a way more easier. Happy Cooking with Zeen !!!!!!
