Zarda Pulao by Saveen Kaur

Zarda Pulao is so easy to make and so yummy to taste!

Zarda Pulao are sweet rice which I love to make during special occasions.

I have taken inspiration from Nita Mehta's recipe for this dish. 


1 cup Rice - Soaked for a few hours before cooking

3 tbsp Ghee

3-4 Cloves

3-4 Green Cardamoms

10-12 Raisins

10-12 Almonds, Blanched

10-12 Pistachios

Yellow Food Color

1 cup Sugar

1 cup Water


Sugar Syrup - Prepare Sugar syrup by mixing water and sugar in a pan. Cook it till the sugar dissolves. Remove it from the flame and keep it aside.

Heat ghee in a kadhai. 

Add cardamoms, cloves, almonds, pistachios and raisins. Keep some for garnishing too.

Cook for a few minutes.

Add rice and mix.

Add 1 cup water and mix in. Add little more water if required.

Add a few drops of yellow color and mix in well. You can also use saffron dissolved in milk for color.

Give rice a boil and then cook it on low flame by placing a griddle under the pan of rice as soon as it starts to boil to reduce the heat further.

Cook for 10-15 minutes till the rice is almost done and the water gets absorbed.

Add the sugar syrup to the cooked rice, mix in well and cook for a few more minutes till the rice is done.

Garnish with dry fruits and serve hot!

Enjoy 💕
Happy Cooking Happy Relishing 😊
