Green peas pulav (Matar pulav)

Peas pulav is one of the quick fix pulavs that I love very much. Its very easy to make and tastes amazing. This is one of the dishes I make to carry in our after lunch boxes. At my native, we don’t get peas all the time. Whenever we get, mom used to make this dish and we love it. Now that I have frozen peas all the time in freezer, I prepare this very often.

This tastes great when served with daal fry.

Ingredients:
2 cups basmati rice
1 cup green peas
1/2 cup onions
4-5 cloves
1″ stick cinnamon
4-5 green chillies
1 tea spn garam masala powder
2 tbl spns ghee or oil
5 cups water
3-4 strands coriander leaves
Salt

Method:

Add water,cover with lid and cook. When half cooked, add garam masala (If added before, the smell goes off by the time pulav is cooked). When cooked, garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot.
