Peas Pulav

Kids generally like one pot meals. And mothers like to make them as its easy cooking than making Sambhar, Rasam and rice along with a side dish. I personally feel one pot meals help a lot to conserve time, energy and Gas ( which is in high demand these days ).  Yes, I can see some heads nod. 

So today's recipe is a simple Peas Pulav, without any fancy ingredient or spices. Very simple meal that uses the ingredients available in your pantry and can be made in a jiffy.


Ingredients 

Basmati Rice - 1 cup ( soaked for 20 mins in 1.5 cups of water )
Green Peas - 1 cup
Green Chili - 2 slit 
Mint and Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Onions - 1/2 cup ( sliced )
Spices - cardamom, clove and saunf
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil as required



Method 

In a small pressure cooker, add a little oil
When the oil is hot, add the spices along with sliced onions
Add the mint and coriander leaves and saute well
I love the aroma at this stage of cooking
When the onions are done, add the ginger garlic paste and saute again 
Add the slit green chilies and green peas
Saute well and add salt
Now add the basmati rice along with the water in which it has been soaked 
Let the water boil for a minute, before you close it and cook for 2 whistles.
Serve hot with papad and curd or raitha

Two points that needs to be noted 

Water to cook basmati rice is 1: 1.5
From the second whistle the flame should be low to ensure that the rice does not burn at the bottom


This Easy breezy meal, is being served at Blogging Marathon  and at  Kid Delight : Potluck
