Firstly, I have prepared this rice pulao recipe with sona masuri which is the perfect choice for this pulao. However, you may also try this recipe with basmati rice or any long grain rice and it should taste equally good. Secondly, the flavoured bath is always served with a choice of spicy coconut chutney and curd raita, but that is not mandatory. Perhaps, you can also serve it with any spicy curry, rasam, dal or even sambar. Lastly, the rice and water proportion used for this recipe are specific to sona masuri rice. If you are planning to use basmati, you may have to reduce the water quantity by a 1:2 ratio.
