Babycorn Vermicelli Pulao/Babycorn Semiya Pulao

If you are searching something quick, filling for an easy lunch or dinner, then you should check this pulao. This vermicelli pulao goes for an easy breezy preparation, once cooked this dish makes an excellent lunch or dinner when served along with raita or pickles. Instead of adding many vegetables, i just went with babycorns with cashews. This dish takes hardly less than half an hour and one can have their lunch or dinner without any fuss.I make this simple pulao whenever i feel lazy or else if am alone at home.
