Hara Masala Pulao

Pin It Now!
This unique recipe of hara/green masala pulao was given to us by my younger sister’s friend,  I guess I was in 3rd year of college at that time. You can serve it with roasted chicken, shami kebabs, or any other kebabs of your choice along with some cumin raita and salad….

Hara Masala rice


 2 cups rice
2 cups chopped fresh coriander
1 cup mint leaves (the cup I use is 210 ml)
3 medium green chilies
½ tsp red chili powder
2 knorr chicken cubes
Salt (while adding salt keep in mind the chicken cubes also contains some salt)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 ½ tsp ginger paste
1 ½ tsp garlic paste
¼ cup oil


Soak the rice for about 20 minutes and then boil. Let them cool down completely. Grind the chopped coriander, mint and green chilies in to a fine paste.  Heat oil in pan and add in the cumin seeds once the start to crackle add in the garlic paste, fry for 2 minutes and add in the ginger paste, fry for further 2 minutes then add in the green masala paste along with chicken cubes, red chili powder and salt, mix it well and stir it till the chicken cubes get dissolved (about 5 minutes). Now add the cooked rice and mix it with a light hand so all the rice is equally coated with green masala. put the heat on very low and cover the pan. Let it steam for about 5 minutes, that’s it, hara masala pulao is ready to be served.
