This rice is something which I found out through an authentic Punjabi restaurant nearby. I was browsing the Zomato website and suddenly bumped into this restaurant menu. I found the recipes made by these Punjabi wadi’s interesting. I had prepared these Punjabi Wadi’s a year ago, used it for some time and totally forgot about it.

When I got to know about this Punjabi Wadi Pulao recipe, I opened the dabba to check if the wadi’s are ok to cook or has it spoiled. They were still fresh and crunchy. That’s it immediately within two days I jumped in to prepare this rice for my lunch box.

I somehow felt that Punjabi Wadi Pulao definitely a very good alternative for either traditional pulao or biriyani. And this is not just the only the reason. The best part is it is a one pot recipe and I made it effortlessly in a pressure cooker.

Punjabi Wadi Pulao Recipe can be made in different ways. One is by adding the deep fried Punjabi wadi, one with adding soaked wadis and one with adding some vegetables also included. I made the simplest version of all. And I did not add the veggies this time to get only the taste of the wadi’s. If eaten immediately the fried wadi remains crisp and crunchy. If you eat it after sometime then the wadi will turn softer outside, yet crunchy from inside. So either way it tastes delicious. Serve it Raitha and papad.
