Tiranga Pulao | How to make Tricolour Rice

Tiranga Pulao

Tiranga Pulao is Indian Flag inspired Tricolour Rice made with three different flavoured rice and arranged as the Indian Flag.

So for the alphabet T, I decided to make Tiranga Pulao made with Tomato Puloa, Ghee Rice and Spinach Pulao. I used fresh spinach that we have in our pot and it was so flavoursome.

For the Saffron layer, I used Tomato Pulao made with tomato puree cooked with spices. I loved arranging these layers. Last time I made a flag inspired dish was this Tricolour Sandesh with different naturally flavoured fruit sandesh.

When I made this pulao I had planned something else too as I wasn’t sure if everybody can have just this for the main course. We loved the individual pulaos as such. This is an interesting pulao to make for a party.

Tiranga Pulao is my choice for T in the AtoZ Biryani/Pulao/Khichdi Festival that’s happening for the April Mega Marathon, where I have opted to make 26 Rice dishes. If you are interested to know what I am doing for T in C4AS, go ahead check it out!Tiranga Pulao

  1. Wow, you have made a three in one, tiranga pulao. The pulao versions you used represent the colors of the Indian flag well and you have made a dish that can be pulled of easily without elaborate work.

  2. You have got a wonderful colour with tomato. I thought it would be carrots. Love the tiranga pulao, well presented
