Peas Pulao

Second day of the blogging marathon and I chose a rice dish. Peas pulao is a simple yet a tasty rice recipe which can be prepared in a jiffy. I usually make this when pressed for time and want li'l IB to eat healthy and he loves it.

1&1/2 cups basmati rice(washed and soaked in water for 30 mins),
Little less than 1/2 cup peas(fresh or frozen) ,
1/2 a medium onion, thinly sliced,
2 green chillies, slit vertically,
2- 1inch pieces of cinnamon sticks,

5-6 cloves,
1 bay leaf
12 cashews,
1 tsp dhaniya pwd,
1/2 tsp jeera,
1/2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste,
Salt to taste,
1/4 tsp turmeric
3.5 cups of water (to cook rice in),
1 tsp ghee,
2 tsp oil.

  • Heat ghee, add cinnamon sticks, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf,cashews and fry till the spices release a nice aroma.
  • Add sliced onion and green chillies and saute till the onion turn translucent.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for 3 mins (till the raw smell disappears).
  • Add dhaniya pwd, jeera pwd, salt, turmeric and peas and cook for 6-8 mins or till the peas are half cooked.
  • Add soaked and drained basmati rice and saute for 3-4 mins, taking care not to break or burn the rice.
  • Add the water and let boil. Adjust seasonings.
  • Close lid and cook till rice is done.
  • Once done, fluff with fork.

  • Enjoy!!!
