Mutton Pulao Rice

Mutton Pulao Rice

 My name is Annie Ishimwe. I’m from Burundi, where I was born. One of my greatest passions is helping others. I like helping people find solutions that meet their specific needs. I like to learn new things and come up with creative ideas to improve something or make something new. I joined Thirteen because I wanted to gain experience in communicating, cooking and learning more about business.


I chose this recipe because it's one of the recipes my sister learned how to cook by herself. The first time she cooked it the whole family loved it so I also started to learn how to cook it after. I love this recipe because we eat it a lot at the eid al adha festival
