Peas Pulav and an Award...

Print Friendly and PDF

Peas Pulav is a simple which can be prepared with no pre-planning.Yet it is so aromatic with lots of flavors and can go with any Gravy/Dal.

Ingredients:


1 cup Basmati Rice
3/4 cup Fresh/Frozen Green Peas
12-15 cashewnuts

1 Big onion finely sliced

2 green chillies slit

1 tsp
Ginger-Garlic paste
1" cinnamon stick

3 Laung(cloves)

1 bayleaf

Salt to taste

1 tbsp Butter

1 tbsp Oil


Method:
  • Soak Basmati rice in water for half an hour.
  • Heat Butter and Oil in cooker,add the dry whole masala's one by one and fry it add green chillies,ginger-garlic paste and fry it.
  • Add thinly sliced onions and fry until they golden brown in color.
  • Now add Green Peas and fry until it changes its color and then add soaked Basmati rice and fry for a minute gently.
  • Add Water in the ratio of 1:1 3/4(rice:water) and add enough salt and cover it with the cooker lid and pressure cook for 1 whistle and lower the flame and cook for 8-10 mins.This makes the rice granules separate.If you are in hurry pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.
  • Decorate it with the Ghee/butter/oil fried whole cashewnuts on top.
Serve it hot with any spicy Gravy or Dal and vegetable raitha.

Note:

  • For a Vegan version use oil instead of ghee for tempering.
