Simple & Quick Chicken Pulav

 Chicken Pulav is a one pot meal. It is very simple and quick to make. I am a great fan of Chef Dhamodharan. I have learnt and cooked lots of his recipes and this is one among them.

The main difference between Chicken pulav and Chicken biryani is pulav remains white and the taste is from the green chillies and coconut milk. Pulav is comparatively milder than biryani.
