Pulaos, Baths and variety rice are always a hit in my home. Dear hubby loves them more than the usual sambar/pitlai/rasam! Now our 13 month old son has joined this gang. He loves all the variety rice that I prepare. All the more reason to cook delicious variety rice recipes 🙂
I prepared peas pulao for our weekend lunch. It tasted awesome!!! Here is the simple green peas pulav recipe.
Peas: 1 cup
Potatoes: 2 (cut into medium sized cubes)
Onions: 2 (chopped length wise)
Ginger & garlic: 2 tbsp (minced)
Cilantro: Handful (chopped)
Mint leaves: Handful (chopped)
Green chillies: 3 (slit length wise)
Oil: 4 tsp
Salt: to taste
Cinnamon powder: 1/4 tsp
Bay leaves: few
Note: I have used frozen peas in this recipe. If you use fresh peas, boil them with little salt and then use them in the recipe.
- Wash & soak rice for 15-20 mins.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a pressure pan and sauté onions till transparent.
- Add ginger, garlic and potatoes and fry them for few minutes.
- Add the cinnamon powder and cloves.
- Then add the soaked rice and fry for 3-4 minutes.
- Add peas, mint leaves, cilantro and bay leaves.
- Finally add water and salt.
- When water starts to boil, close the pressure pan and put the weight.
- Simmer the stove and cook for 1 whistle.
- Wait for the pressure to settle and then open the pan.
- Serve the aloo peas pulao with raita and chips!

If the peas were to be cut into halves and soaked in tamarind water, drained and used as fried may be I may try to forgive the presence of peas.Pl leave me out for this.
haha!! so you don’t like peas… maybe you should try my peas pulao, you will start loving peas 😉 🙂
Hi, The pulav looks utterly delicious, could u tell me how much of rice & water u have used? Thanx.
Thanks Anu 🙂
I always use basmati rice to make pulav. 1 cup of basmati rice with 1.5 cups of water (enough to cook the veggies in the pulav too)
