Peas pulao is a simple, easy and great accompaniment for any vegetarian main course .
- Basmati rice - 2 cups
- Green peas - 1 cup
- Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
- Salt to taste
- Ghee - 2 tablespoons
- Lemon juice - 1 teaspoon
Wash and soak rice for half an hour.
Heat ghee in a pan. Add cumin seeds. Stir fry for half a minute.
Add green peas. Stir fry for another 2 minutes on a low flame.
Add rice, 4 cups of water, salt, lemon juice and bring to a boil.
Once the water starts boiling, reduce the flame and cover with a lid. Cook on a low flame till all the water is absorbed.
Serve hot with any curry/kurma of your choice.
Tips: Lemon juice gives a bright and white look to the pulao. Ghee not only adds flavour to rice but also helps keep rice grains separate.
