Mushroom Pulao

Spicy and tasty mushroom pulao was on the menu for yesterday's lunch. I bought mushrooms to make mushroom roast as side dish for sambhar. He was also at home. It was almost lunch time, me bored of every time making sambhar, rasam for lunch. So i thought i do some variety rice. Then i thought i would make mushroom pulao. First time i made this. I was thinking oh god how will it end up. Thank god it ended up with tasty and yummy pulao. And i got a very good feedback from him too. : )
