Green Peas Pulav

For a simple lunch/dinner i would always vote for Green peas pulav...with lime/mango pickle and raitha.Frozen Green peas is something that is always available in my freezer and without any doubt it comes handy when my fridge is almost empty.
I usually think that grinding masala paste is so boring..but i end up doing it for a simple pulav or any side dish.Masala does add an alluring taste.Try this recipe and let me know !


2 tablespoon Ghee/oil
1 1/2 cups of Basmati rice (clean and soak rice in water)
1 cup of green peas ( if not frozen cook the green peas till its tender )
Pinch of cardomom powder
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1 tablespoon of grated coconut
5-6 Cloves
1 Bay Leaf

For the Masala Paste : (Grind together with little water)

1/2 cup of chopped onions
2-3 Garlic pods
2 green chillies
A small piece of ginger
3 tablespoon of grated coconut

Heat oil in a skillet,fry the cloves,bay leaf and then the chopped onions.Fry for 2-3 minutes,add green peas and mix.Now add the masala paste and fry for 3-4 mins.
Add grated coconut,salt and mix.
Drain water and add the rice.Mix well and cook it in a pressure cooker/rice cooker.Serve hot with pickle/raitha.

Take a quick look at their video, the strategy is about using Mobile Advertising which is brand new and an unexposed marketplace where you can make thousands by doing hardly any work. I promise you that after you watch their short video it will change you and it will start making you think.
