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.

Peas                                            - 1 cup

  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.

  • 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.
