well, to be honest, i am not a huge fan of dry fruits or nuts in my rice-based recipe. be it a biriyani recipe or any other flavoured recipe, i try to avoid it in my recipe. having said that, navaratna pulav recipe is something special and is incomplete without adding nuts to it. moreover, i have tried to make it more on a savoury and mild spicy side instead of sweetened pulao. i assume the same taste even my readers look forward in any rice based recipe, except zarda or kesari bath recipe. in addition, even though it is a one-pot meal, but i personally like it to be served with choice of dal recipe. my personal favourite is moong dal tadka, but it should taste great with any choice of dal or boondi raita.

furthermore, some tips, suggestions, variations and considerations while preparing navaratna pulav recipe. firstly, the recipe name is mainly derived from the 9 different dry fruits and vegetables added to the flavoured rice. while adding these many dry fruits makes it special, but it is not mandatory. you can add the nuts whatever available to you locally. secondly, adding basmati cooked rice makes the pulao visibly appetite and flavourful. having said that it is not mandatory and you can add your choice of cooking rice. perhaps the second best option is sona masuri rice in the absence of basmati. lastly, you can easily extend the recipe by adding any choice of your veggies. but ensure to finely chop them before using it in the pulao so that they cook faster.
