Pulao from leftover... but still yummy...

Die-hard foodies are going to kill me for this. I can't differentiate between a pulao or a biryani or dum-pukht or fried rice. For me, all rice dishes are biryanis. All of us order food for dinner from restaurants vegetarians order veg makhanwala 70 percent of the times and non-vegetarians order butter chicken. And when its left, we keep it in fridge but dont feel like having it again for lunch the next day. So lets make biryani, pulao, fried rice out of it. What say?
One Cup Leftover Veg Makhanwala or Butter Chicken.
One teaspoon Jeera
One teaspoon Salt
Two teaspoons Biryani Masala
One Cup Rice (washed and cleaned)
Two tablespoons of oil

Method: Put Cooker on stove and heat it a bit. Put oil in it and as it heats up, add jeera in it. Once the jeera is grey enough, add rice and the leftover dish. Mix it well on slow flame. Add Biryani Masala and mix it well. Put three cups of water and close the lid of the cooker with weight or siti in its place. Cook on slow flame only and turn the stove after 3 sitis or pressure alarms. Open it once the pressure has released itself. Eat this wonderful rice dish with curd or raita.

Definitely worth a try... we're always in stock of leftovers. A friend's mom told me to just add it chapati dough and make rotis. This is easier :)
