Yakhni basically is a yogurt and saffron based mutton broth or stock. The broth/ stock is made using mutton and whole garam masala which is tied in a bouquet. Aromatic spices are the essence of this pulao or pilaf. Yogurt is another ingredient which is the key to bringing all these flavours together and giving this pulao its unique flavor. Meat/Vegetables are half boiled in water along with spices and salt, then cooked again along with rice. Unlike the other pulao recipes, meat/vegetables are cooked twice in yakhni pulao recipe, first directly in water and second along with rice.


This blog is a diary of my adventures in home cooking. My recipes are fairly quick and simple. Since I prefer home style cooking you will find a lot of basic and easy to cook recipes. I use easily available ingredients and gadgets to cook my food. I write about whatever is cooking in my home- simple everyday meals, menus for casual entertaining, attempts to replicate restaurant dishes, baking experiments and tastes of cuisines around the world.
