Peas Pulav



Cooking Time : 15 mins
 Serves : 2 persons


Peas Pulav is one of my favourite rice varieties. It is very easy to prepare and is flavourful. I have prepared this using Coconut milk. Addition of Chillies and Coconut milk gives splendid taste. Just give a try. You will definitely love this.






INGREDIENTS:
Basmathi/Seeraga Samba Rice      - 1 cup
Peas                                            - 1 cup
Onion                                         - 1 no
Sesame Oil                                  - 3 tsp
Ghee                                           - 2 tsp
Bay Leaves                                 - 1
Cloves                                         - 2 no
Cinnamon sticks                          - 1 "
Green  chillies                              -  5 no
Black Pepper Powder                   - 1 tsp
White Pepper Powder                  - 1/2 tsp
Coconut Milk                               - 1 cup
Coriander leaves                            - To garnish
Salt                                                - To taste



METHOD:

  1. 1.Soak Rice in warm water for 30  mins. Chop Onion into length wise, Split open Green chilly.
  2.  In a cooker, Heat Oil and Ghee. Add Bay Leaves, Cloves, Cinnamon sticks and let the flavour comes out.
  3.  Add onion and fry till it becomes light brown colour. Add Peas, White Pepper Powwder, Black Pepper Powder and stir for 2 mins.
  4.  Add Rice , 1 cup of water,Coconut Milk, Salt, Green Chillies and coriander leaves and pressure cook for 2 whistles in medium flame and keep it in simmer for 5 mins and remove from the flame.
  5.  Serve hot with Raitha.


Tips:

  • Use fresh Coconut milk for best results. Ratio of water and coconut milk should be equal. For 1 cup of Rice, ratio of coconut milk and water is 1:1.
  • If Coconut milk is not available, you can use milk instead.
