This post has been in my drafts for exactly 9 months. It’s waiting to see the light of day (or the light of your monitor) for way too long. It didn’t fit any of the BM themes till now. I saw the recipe being made on one of the Telugu cooking show.

As the name suggests this is a sweet pulao made with pineapple chunks and basmati rice. Addition of whole garam masala is the interesting part of the dish. All in all it is a simple dish packed with flavors. Give it a try if you are looking for a different dish.
