27 PEAS PALAV

Peas Pulao/ Palav/ Biryani


A simple and delicious rice that can be made within minutes. Can cook by transferring the masala in a cooker or cook on stove top.


Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Onion - 1 sliced thin
Tomato - 2 large or 3 small chopped
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Green chillies - 4 or 5 slit long
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder - 3/4 tsp
Yogurt/ Curd - 1/2 cup
Frozen/ Fresh Peas - 3/4 - 1 cup
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp

Spices-
Very few of all these
Cardamom, clove, cinnamon, cumin seeds( can also add any other spice as preferred).


Wash and soak rice for 20 - 30 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan and add all the spices, then add sliced onions. Fry till transculent and add green chillies. Saute for a minute and add ginger garlic paste. Fry for a minute until raw smell leaves. Next add chopped tomatoes and mash and cook till pulpy and water leaves out and oil floats on top. Now add turmeric powder and chilli powder and mix well. Then add peas and yogurt. Reduce flame and mix. Finally add rice , salt and water ( 3 1/2 cups) and cook till done or transfer to a rice cooker and cook.


If you want to enhance more then can cook in dum style. My mom does this for making this rice that is when the water starts to bubble up. Reduce flame and heat a tawa. Place the pan/vessel on top of the tawa. Cover a tight plate and place a heavy vessel on top. Or can place another vessel on top with water filled up so it increases its weight. This way the rice tastes too good.
