  • Allow the rice to cook without covering the lid on medium flame.
  • Give a stir in between.
  • When the water starts getting absorbed, reduce the flame.
  • Cover the lid of the cooking pot.
  • Place a tawa beneath the cooking vessel in order to avoid the rice burning at the bottom.
  • Cook on low flame until the rice is completely done and cooked well.
  • Switch off the flame.

  • Serve hot with raita.

Making quick raita:

  • Add 1/2 cup beaten yogurt into a bowl.
  • Add salt, a pinch of ginger garlic paste, mix well.
  • Add very finely chopped onions.
  • Add finely chopped mint leaves, finely chopped coriander leaves.
  • Mix everything well.
  • Serve hot egg pulao with raita.


  • The quantity of the rice to water here should be 1:2 that is if 1 cup rice is added then 2 cups of water is required if making pulao in a slow cooking method.
  • If making egg pulao in pressure cooker, then just add 1.5 cup of water to 1 cup of rice and pressure cook for two whistles...
