Biryani and Pulao are both rice dishes and cooked with vegetables or meat in aromatic spices.  Here i have created Chana Veg Pulyani, which is a fusion of Pulao and Biryani.

Pulyani is cooked with soaked rice with vegetables and white chana or chickpeas in rich biryani masala and aromatic biryani essence. The cooking method is just the same as pulao is cooked so tried a new name for this dish – Pulyani!
