Easy Peas Pulao in ten minutes

Hello friends,

Sweetannu is back with another easy peasy recipe - Peas Pulao. This I stirred up in no time, at the last moment in the afternoon. I was waiting by the window for Sujata to come but when she didn't turn up I gave up. I had no option to cook up something really quickly.

I just cooked up a peas pulao and had it  all by myself. You will love it especially if you are a rice lover like me. Just a papad, pickle or have it with, ketchup, curd or some left over gravy. All these would be great accompaniments with peas pulao. Note the ingredients and method. 


1 cup basmati rice
½ cup peas 
1 medium sized onion
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
¼ Cup kasturi methi 
1 tbsp Oil
½ inch cinnamon stick
1 medium size tomato
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp chilli powder
Salt to taste


1. First wash and soak rice for so that cooking is faster. Also if you are using frozen peas, soak it water too. 

2. Take a medium size kadai, heat oil,  add a cinnamon stick and thinly sliced onion and fry quickly on medium flame till onions  turn translucent. 

3. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till they lose the rawness.

4. Now add the chopped tomato and dry spices. 

5. Add the peas to this and gently give it a stir for 30 seconds. 

6. Now drain the water from  rice and add to this. Cook on a medium flame till the rice starts to cook and  gives out a nice aroma.

7. Add kasturi methi at this stage. 

8. Add one cup  water such as it covers the rice completely.

9. Cook till rice is done.

10. Cover and cook for best quick results. 

11. Serve it hot with accompaniment of your choice. 

For the fastest results Pressure cook on high flame for 4 whistles with two cups water. 

You can use ghee instead of oil.
