Egg Pulao

As I have already mentioned in my previous post that my family always craves for egg. We almost love anything that is made from egg. Today I am sharing with you Egg Pulao. You can even name this One Pot Egg Pulao. This pulao is made with boiled egg. You can add some veggie too like carrot, beans, peas etc but I was falling short of veggies so didn't add it.
Egg Pulao

I made this when my mom was hospitalized few weeks back. During this time we hardly used to get time to cook a complete meal. We even didn't used to get time to go to the market to buy veggies. One day while I was looking for veggies in the refrigerator there was none available except some eggs. So I made this dish as it takes very less time to make and is loved by everyone at home.
