What is pilav / fried rice / biriyani?


Pilaf or pilav or pulav, is a dish in which rice is cooked in a seasoned broth.The English term pilaf is borrowed directly from Turkish, palov, which in turn comes from Persian polow (پلو), and ultimately derives from Sanskrit pulāka- (पुलाक), "lump of boiled rice". We know it, everything gains their origin from india :-).

In India pilav is mostly prepared in a coconut milk broth.

Fried rice, on the other hand is a popular component of Southeast Asian cuisine, where it is staple as Southeast Asian foods. It is made from steamed rice stir-fried in a wok, often with other ingredients, such as eggs, vegetables, and meat.

Biryani or biriyani ( Malayalam: ബിരിയാണി, Kannada: ಬಿರಿಯಾನಿ, Tamil: பிரியாணி, Hindi: बिरयानी, Telugu: బిర్యాని, Urdu: بریانی) is a set of rice-based foods made with spices, rice (usually basmati) and meat, fish, eggs or vegetables. The name is derived from the Persian word beryā(n) (بریان) which means "fried" or "roasted".

Soya chunks Pilav


The first step is to prepare the soya chunks stir fry. I used half of the above recipe to prepare my pilav.

Ingredients


1 - Rice - 2 cups
Water - 4 cups (+another 1/4 cup if using coconut milk powder)

2 - Soya chunks stir fry - half of the above recipe

3 - Coconut milk -  1/2 cup or coconut milk powder - 2 tbsp dissolved in 1/4 cup of water


Method:


- In a microwavable pot add rice with water, coconut milk and soya chunks stir fry.

- Mix well and cook in microwave at full power for 20 minutes or till all the water is absorbed.

- Mix well again as u will find some of the soya chunks find their way at the top. Mix so that all the flavours are combined.

- Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with raita, popadoms and spicy keralan pickles.
