Ma never added cloves to make any kind of pulao or biryani or savory rice dishes coz she said that cloves in rice made her associate it to saakhar bhat(sweet rice)(recipe to follow soon )
So sometimes I add cloves at other times I do not, so adding cloves is optional
Either ways this rice definitely tastes nice.
