Peas Pulao

This is a simple pulao recipe. Try it out and let me know if u liked it...


Basmathi Rice-2 cups
Frozen green peas- 3/4th to 1 cup
coconut milk- 1/2 cup(optional)
oil- 4 tsp
ghee- 1 tsp
To Grind
green chillies-6 (if u want more spicy 8)
cinnamon- 1 smallpiece
saunf-1 tsp
ginger- 1 small piece
garlic- 4 cloves
coriander leaves- a few

Soak the Basmathi rice in water for 15 mins . Drain it , add 1 tsp of oil and microwave it for 2 mins.
Heat 4 tsp of oil and 1 tsp of ghee in a kadai . Add the onions and saute till it becomes transparent. add the ground masala to this. saute till the oil seperates.
Add 1/2 cup of coconut milk + 2 1/2 cup of water or 3 cups of water( in the ratio of 1:1 1/2) in the rice cooker. When it boils add the peas,sauted masala and rice.cook until done.
Serve hot with aloo kurma and raita.

note: I did this in the rice cooker,so i followed this method. U can straight away do this in the pressure cooker too. Instead of kadai add oil in the cooker itself , fry the ingredients and add rice and water to it and cook .
