The richness of Khaber Pakhtun Kwan’s cuisine is no secret to most desi food lovers. In fact, my regular users are familiar with the fact that all Youtube bloggers that have come to Pakistan to explore Pakistani Cuisine love KPK Cuisine. You can also read our fabulous articles on visitors’ view by clicking here. Let’s talk about the topic! I got a chance of exploring many local Pakhtun dishes during my 2 years stay in Islamabad.  I also visited renowned cities of KPK province and taste famous dishes from local food streets. However, I realized Banu Beef Pulao is one of the famous dishes and the people of KPK are in so love with special Banu Beef Pilao. So, I decided to taste the original Banu Beef Pul from Peshawar, when I did that was really amazing experience for me. Honestly speaking, It was one of the best Pilaosof my life. That tasty pulao encouraged me to make a replica of Banu Beef Pulao on my own.

 

My Experience With Banu Beef Pilao:

 

Bannu Beef Pulao

 

Here is another delicious meal from the diverse and rich Khyber Pakhtoon Khwa cuisine. I noticed several roadside sellers and dhabbas advertising “Bannu’s Famous Beef Pulao” or “Malang Jan’s Famous Beef Pulao” during our brief trip to Peshawar. By the way, Bannu is located in Khyber Paktoon Khwa. There seems to be where this particular kind of pulao originated, however, these details are uncertain. Anyway, a year or two later, similar signboards started to emerge in other cities as well. This pulao contains several intriguing additions that are not seen in conventional pulao and is deeper in colour than typical pulao.

 

My Recipe for Banu Beef Pulao:

Even though the recipe appears to be lengthy, if you enjoy Indian cuisine, you know that all of the components are used frequently in our regular meals. The only thing that changes is the proportion a little. To prepare this luscious and juicy pulao, follow these simple instructions:

 

1. Yakhni in Pulao:

 

Similar to conventional pulao, this dish is also yakhni-based. It calls for medium-sized cuts of beef, either boneless or with bones, as well as a few extra bones for richness and taste. Because cow’s shin meat is significantly juicier than other cuts of beef, I utilised boneless bong flesh instead. Only salt is added to the yakhni after the beef Botti and bones have been properly tenderised in water. No onion, ginger, or garlic, nor any other spice. SALT ONLY. When the meat is completely soft, we filter the yakhni and, if necessary, add water in accordance with the amount of rice.

 

 

2. Selection of  Rice for Pulao:

 

Use the best basmati rice you can find to prepare this pulao as normal, and make sure you are aware of how long the rice has to soak before cooking. Never, ever boil rice with twice as much water! Less water will be needed the longer the rice is soaked. Similar to this recipe, I used 4 cups of rice that I soaked for 30 to 35 minutes before cooking with 6 and a half cups of water. I would have needed roughly 6 cups of yakhni if I had soaked the rice for a longer period of time—say, 45–50 minutes. The main factors requiring modification in the rice to yakhni ratio are the kind of rice, its quality, the type of utensil/pot, the strength of the flame, etc.

 

 

3. Masala For Desi Pulao:

 

Use top-notch basmati rice as usual, and make sure you understand how long to soak each type you’re using before making this pulao. Never, ever boil rice with double the amount of water! Rice will require less water the longer it is soaked. For example, I used 4 cups of rice for this dish, soaked it for 30 to 35 minutes, and then cooked it with around 6 and a half cups of water. I would have used around 6 cups of yakhni if the rice had been soaked for a longer period of time, like 45–50 minutes. Adjusting the rice to yakhni ratio is mostly dependent on the kind of rice, its quality, the type of utensil or pot, the strength of the heat, etc.

  • Next, add the diced tomatoes,
  • To induce tomatoes to become soft and onions to release colour, roast them together with a dash of water.
  • Add additional yoghurt and continue to roast until the oil separates,
  • Incorporate cooked beef boti
  • Using ginger and garlic paste to roast,
  • Add the yakhni as directed. Drum roll please, only a few entire garam masalas will be added. Tea bags or tea leaves. Yes, tea is used to intensify the colour. I was concerned that the tea bags may break so that the floating object holds tea leaves.
  • Let it come to a boil, then add the strained rice and simmer, uncovered, over medium-high heat until approximately 85% of the water has evaporated.
  • Put the lid on the pot at this time, cover with aluminium foil, and let simmer for at least 25 to 30 minutes.
  • The particular yoghurt raita that some dhabbas offer with this pulao is made out of yoghurt, salt, white cumin, green chilli, black pepper powder, and a tiny onion. Adding some simple Green Chutney to plain yoghurt is another option.
  • Look at how soft the flesh is! It is advised not to compare this pulao to the common pulao that we are all familiar with because it has its own unique flavour, look, and richness. Try it out while keeping an open mind to new flavours in an effort to experience something new and unique.
