Chicken Yakhni Pulao Recipe

Some days just call for Chicken Yakhni Pulao. Warm and delicious, it’s great for the soul on cold fall days. 

My sister gave me an amazing book, “Heirloom Recipes from Pakistan”, compiled by the Pakistan Women’s Association of the Philippines, Inc. The proceeds from the sale of this book go to charity work supported by the association. Love the experience behind the recipes!

Tried the recipe below from the book:


I struggle a bit in deciding liquid quantity for a pulao and that’s why usually make biryani when I’m expecting a lot of guests. This recipe however has the perfect formula and it always turns great. If you end up with some extra yakhni, you can use it to help fight or prevent cold in the house.

Make some raita and fresh salad to go with the pulao and enjoy!

Let me know how it turns out or if you have any questions!
