Peas Pulav

Hi friends,
Sometimes we really get bored with our same daily menu...During Diwali had sweets and high calorie food, I decided to make simple PEAS PULAV 
for this weekend ...Enjoy the pulav with veg raita and mint chutney.

I pack peas pulav for my son in his lunch box, he loves it and calls peas pulav as BALL RICE ....Funny.




Ingredients:
1 cup Basmati Rice 
1 1/2 cup peas (Frozen/Fresh)
2 medium size onion (Finely Sliced)
1/4 tsp ginger-garlic paste (optional)
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp pepper powder
Few fresh coriander leaves (finely chopped)
1" cinnamon stick
2-3 cloves
1-2 green cardamom
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 bay leaf
                        

Method:
  1. Wash and soak rice for 30 mins . Keep it aside.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pressure cooker, add cloves, bay leaf, cardamom, cumin seeds and cinnamon stick 
  3. Add onions, saute till it turns transparent.
  4. Add ginger- garlic paste, mix well and saute for 2-3 mins.
  5. Add basmati rice, peas , cumin powder, garam masala, salt and pepper powder. Mix well, cook rice for 2-3 mins on low flame.
  6. Add water. Mix well. 
  7. Close the cooker with the lid and give 2 whistles.
  8. Remove from the heat, open the lid once pressure drops.
  9. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve it with Raita and Green Mint Chutney.

Note: If your are cooking pulav in heavy bottom vessel then the ratio must be the double.
1 cup of rice : 2 cups of water.

If you are cooking Pulav in the pressure cooker then ration must be the same or little more.
1 cup of rice : 1 cup or 1 1/4 cup of water.
