Peas Pulao is a simple and delicious one pot meal which is usually accompanied by a Raita and Papad. The whole spices used impart the wonderful fragrance to the Pulao . I prefer to eat mine without any accompaniement.
250 gms Basmathi rice
150 gms shelled peas
5 one inch piece of Cinnamon/Dalchini
7 pods of Cardamom /Elaichi
3 Star Anise/ Badyan/Chakri phool
7 green chillies slit
A fistful of cashews
2 large onions sliced
5 tbsps Ghee/Clarified butter
2 tbsps oil
500 ml boiling water.
Wash the Basmathi rice and keep aside. Heat the Ghee and oil mixture. Drop in the Cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, Star anise and Cashewnuts. Allow the whole spices to splutter and the cashews to turn a golden brown. Drop in the chillies and onions and roast till translucent. Add the peas and Basmathi rice. Gently sauté for a minute. Drop in the boiling water and salt. Bring to a boil, cover and cook on a gentle flame till done. Ready in twenty minutes. Serve with Onion raita and papad.
