3. Now Place the flame in low and cover the pot with lid. Since I have a small opening for the steam to escape in the lid I have sealed it with aluminium paper and then covered with a lid.Cook in low flame for 10 minutes. Open the lid after 10 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork. Transfer the pulao to a bowl. Serve with Raita.
