Mint Rice | Pudina Rice | Mint  Pulao recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Learn how to make flavorful mint rice. Mint pulao is aromatic dish cooked in one pot. Mint or pudina is used for making chutney, thogayal and also used in biryani. My mother used to make thogayal with mint and coriander. I don’t like to eat it with rice. But I like the mint rice prepared in cooker similar to pulao. It is very healthy to include mint in your diet. It is easy to prepare and pack for lunch box.
