Simple Peas Pulav


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Onion - 1 sliced thinly
Peas - 1 cup ( I used frozen)
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tblspn
Green Chilli - 4 to 5
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Ghee - 2 tblspn
Water - 1 cup


Wash Rice in lots of water. Now Soak basmati rice for 30 mins. Drain it and set aside.

Heat ghee in a kadai.

Add in cumin seeds and let them crackle.

Add in onions and saute till they turn translucent.

Add in green chilli, ginger garlic paste and salt.

Now add in peas and mix well.

Throw in the soaked and drained rice.

Fry that in the ghee for 1 mins.

Now take your electric rice cooker.

Pour this mixture into the bowl of it and place inside the rice cooker.

Add in 1 cup of water and mix well.

Close the rice cooker and let it cook till the rice cooker turns off.

Let it stay in warm mode for 5 mins.

Now serve the perfectly cooked peas pulav with any curry.

The peas in this can be substituted with kadala(White Channa) and you get tatier channa Rice. These both are my favourite when my amma makes it. She is a masterpiece of this. So dedicating this to my amma.
