Green Apple Pulao

4 from 1 vote

Green apples, one of the most loved and widely loved fruit now used in a pulao recipe by me for the first time. This innovative idea of mine has all the benefits of these sour and sweet apples along with the richness of ghee. Exceptionally awesome in taste and is best eaten on it's own without any additional accompaniments whatsoever. The phrase an apple a day keeps the doctor away fits it perfectly well. However you might not stay away from this yummy enticing pulao after tasting this once.

  • Add cooked rice and mix well. Garnish with garam masala, toasted almonds and raisins along with the chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with any gravy of your choice or just as it is. It tastes awesome even on it's own.


This apple pulao is a keeper for sure. Kids will definitely love this sweet and a little tangy pulao for a change. Choose a bit sweeter apples rather than the too tangy ones. And also if you are using raw rice instead of cooked rice, add maggi cubes to the water. It tastes yum. Besides you can also use variety of apples for this pulao.
