Matar ka Pulao (Rice with Peas) is a popular Indian recipe. It is a very simple dish which perfectly compliments most Indian curries. I learnt this recipe from my mother-in-law, who btw is a very good cook.
What you’ll need is:Vegetable Oil or Ghee -1tbsp Bay Leaf -1 Cinnamon Stick-1 inch Coriander leaves-1/4th cup Salt to taste Peas -1 cup Water -3 cups (should be double the amount of rice) Basmati Rice-1½ cup
How to cook:
1. Heat oil in a non-stick saucepan. Once the oil is hot, add bay leaf and Cinnamon stick. Let it fry for a few seconds till the bay leaf starts changing its color.
2. Add peas and salt to the pan. Saute it for 2-3 mins.
3. Add rice and water. Cover the pan with a lid. Let it cook till rice is done.
4. Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot.
