Pea Pulao

Cumin flavored rice with peas

Pea Pulao is an eternal favorite. It is simple yet tasty. It goes well with non-vegetarian and vegetarian curries. Basmati rice is a fragrant variety of long grained, high quality rice. It is grown in the north of India and is regarded as the "King of all rice". It is used to make biryanis and pulao.

2 cups Basmati rice
1/2 cup Green peas
1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds
5 to 6 Whole Cloves
1 Bay leaf
2 tablespoons Oil
Salt to taste
4 cups Hot Water

Wash and drain the rice. Keep aside for 20 minutes. Heat the oil, on medium high. Add the cloves, bay leaf and cumin seeds and stir for a few seconds. Then add the rice and continue to sauté for 5-8 minutes, stirring constantly. Now add the peas and stir. After a few minutes you will notice that the rice starts to form clumps.

Add the 4 cups of hot water and the salt (approx. 1 1/2-teaspoon). Increase the heat, and bring it to a boil. Cover the pot with a lid, simmer on low and cook for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow it to stand, still covered for 5 minutes, until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid. Before serving fluff up the rice with a fork and lightly season with a little butter or oil.
