Egg Pudhina Pulao, Egg & Mint Pulao

Am running this week's blogging marathon with One ingredient 3 ways as theme, after two different dishes, this ultimate Mint egg pulao is my final post for this week's theme. Easy to make, you can prepare this pulao easily with less efforts. A prefect meal to pack in anyone's lunch box as well, not to forget that this pulao is a real feast for Eggetarians. If you are a vegetarian, dont forget to replace the boiled eggs with either pan fried paneer cubes, boiled chickpeas or else simply with a bowl of mixed vegetables.
