Peas Pulao

So, the official eating season is in full swing. We are have a good time eating. During such times, I realized that I tend to repeat a few rich-festive recipes very often Malai Kofta , Dum Aloo , and Panner Tikka Masala. Will be updating the last recipe very soon. Along with such curries it will be Jeera rice or of late Peas Pulao. Peas Pulao is not actually a Pulao in technical sense, it is just a mildly spicy but very fragrant rice which goes very well with rice curries mentioned above. If cooking for ourselves I did make it in the Microwave oven!! It takes 12 minutes start to finish that way. Cannot be faster with anything else. Happy eating.

We will need,

Basmati Rice 3/4 C (Use good quality Indian Basmati)
Ghee 2 tsp
Cardamon 3
Black Cardamon 2
Bay  leaf 2
Cloves 4
Cinnamon  1/4"
Marati Moggu 3
Fennel Seeds 1/4 tsp
Green Chilly 2 slit
Fresh Mint a handful
Peas 1/4-1/2 C
Salt to taste

  • Wash the rice in multiple changes of water. Soak it in two cups of water and set it aside.
  • Heat ghee in a pan. Throw in the cardamon, black cardamon, bay leaf,cloves, cinnamon, marati moggu and fennel seeds.
  • Once the spices stop sizzling, throw in the green chilies and the fresh mint.
  • Throw in the peas. Sprinkle salt and cook the peas for a couple of minutes and remove it from heat.
  • In a Microwave proof bowl, combine the rice, along with the soaking water and the peas and spices.
  • Pop it in the Microwave oven for 6-10 minutes depending on the strength of the oven.
  • Once the rice is cooked, remove from the oven, fluff it up with fork and serve hot.
