From Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, this Kofta Pulao is a festive rice with chicken meatballs, delicately seasoned with saffron and mint. It is elegant but much easier to put together than a more elaborate and formal biryani. Of course, as with most recipes, the Instant Pot® makes it even more manageable. The heat or chili quotient is a variable in this dish, and if you wish you can make the meatballs spicier.
