  1. In ghee rice or pulao sugar should be added but there is no touch of sugar.. without adding sugar it will be tasteless..

    • Hello Taniya, I do not like the sweet taste in my pulao or ghee rice and i like it with savoury taste. but you are more than welcome to add it. also thanks a lot for sharing this tip with us. I will certainly try it.
