Tomato Pulav – Blog Hop Wednesdays

It is Week 7 of Blog Hop Wednesdays. This Week i m paired with Saraswathi of Saras’s Kitchen. She has a Lovely Blog!!!! I wanted to try her Pasta vadai too, but couldnt make it for the Hop, But would definitely make it some other day!!! This Tomato Pulav recipe, got my mind, coz i had a similar recipe given by my Co-sister. My FIL was all praises for her after trying this Pulav at her place, so i called her up and got the recipe, But still didnt try it out. When i was browsing thru  Saras Kitchen, i remembered that and bookmarked this immediately for the Blog Hop!!!!!
