Peas Pulao

Peas Pulao or Matar Pulao, very simple and tasty rice dish, specially for kids. Winter is proper season to get fresh peas in market. I am using fresh peas now. But sometimes when I don’t get them in market, I prefer frozen peas also.
Peas Pulav goes very well with any Raita or any gravy dish like Paneer butter masala. This rice is very simple and less spicy dish. So, this can be served to kids as one pot recipe.


3 tbsp oil/ghee/butter
1 tsp. cumin seeds  (Jeera)
4 sticks cinnamon (dalchini)
4 cloves (laung / lavang)
2  bay leaves (tejpatta)
3 green chilies, chopped
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1 cup long grain Basmati Rice  , cleaned and washed
3/4 cup green peas
salt to taste
Mint leaves for garnishing

1.Heat oil or ghee in pan. Add cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, bay leaf ,cloves and let them sizzle.
2.Put onion and green chili and sauté them for 1-2 minutes on medium flame.
3.Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for few minutes till everything is well mixed. Add green peas and washed rice and mix well. Saute rice for few minutes so it will mix nicely with all spices. Add salt as per taste.
4.Add hot water to the rice and place the lid. Adding hot water to rice doesn’t lose its flavor and taste. Cook rice for 10 minutes.
5.Remove the lid and serve hot Peas Pulav in dish or bowl. Garnish with mint leaves and serve with Raita.
 Enjoy Your day !!!
