This is a traditional bengali dish. 'Basanti' means yellow colour. You can also call this Sweet (mishti) Pulao. My mom make this in many parties along with Macher Kalia or Mutton Kosha. I have literally no words about the combination. This is the must combination 'he' wants on his birthday dinner. Give it a try.

Basonti Pulao / Holud Pulao / Mishti Pulao

Steps

Wash and soak the rice in 1/4th cup of cold water for 30 minutes. Do not drain the water because my mom always tells me that the water soaks the flvour of the rice. That's why soak the rice in very little water.
Cooking Step: Basonti Pulao / Holud Pulao / Mishti Pulao
Take a pan. Heat oil.
Now add green cardemom cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, cashews and raisins. Saute it for a minute.
