Rainbow Pulao in MicrowaveThis is my sixth posting on microwave cooking. I myself like cooking in microwave as it can cook all our everyday dishes as well as elaborate traditional ones. Cooking in microwave saves time and labour.
This is a colourful rice dish which is very easy to cook specially with the upcoming festive season. (Don't forget to comment or subscribe .)
