furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the kaju pulao recipe. firstly, the fresh masala paste is prepared in the mortar & pestles which gives a coarse masala paste. this is how it is done in the village which gives us an authentic and traditional taste. but if you do not have it, you may use other options like a mixer grinder. secondly, this recipe is dedicated to the cashew nut or kaju and hence i have added just those. but you can experiment with other dry fruits like raisins, pista, walnuts and almonds too. lastly, to get non-sticky and moist rice, follow the same proportion of rice, water and cooking time. also, i would heavily recommend using long grain basmati rice for good results.
