Potato Green Peas Pulao | Aloo Matar Pulav | Pattani sadham

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.

Green Peas Pulao


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.

Preparation Method:

  • 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.

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)
