Peas Pulav

During my school days in India my grandmother used to make peas pulav on weekends. Boy oh boy , my tummy would start rumbling just smelling it cook. You could get the flavor in every bite. It was absolutely DELICIOUS.
I miss that taste even now. The version I make is good too, but definetly not upto my grandma's. But if you try this recipe you will surely not be disappointed. I can guarantee you that much.


Basmathi rice- 2 cups
cloves- 3
pattai- 1" piece
bay leaf- 1
rose mokku- 1
sombu- 1/2 tsp
peas- 1 1/2 cups
onion- 1/2 (sliced)
ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp
green chillies- 2 (chopped)
water- 4 cups

Heat equal parts of oil and ghee. Fry all the spices. Then add onions,ginger garlic paste and green chillies. When the onions gets cooked but does not change color add washed rice and fry for a few minutes. Then add peas, required water and salt. Close cooker and wait until vapour comes out of the cooker nozzle. Put vent on top,keep gas in medium and cook for 8 to 10 mins. Switch off gas. wait till done. open cooker, mix well and add chopped corriander leaves. Finally fry some cashews and add to rice.(I did not do it today , but adding cashews will make your rice look rich and definetly taste good).
