Red Kidney Beans pulao recipe in Dutch oven. Whole spices make this into one fragrant rice dish! Give it a try & you won't regret it!
I love red kidney beans and wanted to try making this pulao in my new Dutch oven. I have to say, all went very well and the dish came out amazing! It is colorful, aromatic, spicy and just perfectly filling - without the overload feeling.
When you make this recipe, do remember to add cilantro and mint at the end - I forgot to mention it in the video when I am adding cilantro that the next item I added was the fresh mint. This recipe might take little bit of your time but I assure you, its so worth it!

For those with SUGAR issues:-
If you have sugar issues, you can still enjoy this recipe with 4 very simple, easy options!
1. REDUCE the quantity of rice and add some quinoa. So, you can do, say, 30% rice to 70% quinoa.
2. OR, you can eliminate rice completely - make the recipe as is, and mix in quinoa instead of rice.
3. And remember, to add some Ceylon cinnamon to your food when cooking AND when ready to eat.
4. Add some bay leaves powder for even more powerful blood sugar balance! Happy Cooking!
