  1. Garam masala and kitchen king masala can be sauted and added for extra flavour
  2. Pulav can be cooked in pressure cooker or directly in pan
  3. Brown rice, hand pound rice, quinoa, millet, white rice etc. can be used instead of basmati rice. Cooking time may vary accordingly. For white rice cook in rice mode
