potluck-4Matar 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.
