Rohit's Mint Pulav with Egg

I have already posted a recipe for Dill and Mint Pulav on the blog. This recipe is my husband's version of Pulav using just Mint. Whenever my husband decides to cook I know I am in for a treat because he goes all out and cooks to perfection. Eggs were added to this dish to increase the protein content but eggs are optional and the pulav tastes just as delicious without it. Serve with raita.Give this mouthwatering version of Mint Pulav a try ... Bon Appetite :)
