Ingredients

  • Basmati rice- 2 cups
  • Onion- 1 medium sized (thinly sliced)
  • Peas- 3/4 cup (boiled)
  • Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
  • Salt
  • Vegetable oil- 3 tbsp
  • Ghee/ clarified butter- 11/2 tbsp
  • Sugar- 1/4 cup (This amount of sugar was fine with me, you can reduce as per your taste)
  • Star anise- 1
  • Green cardamom-4 (roughly crushed)
  • Cinnamon-1″ (2 pieces)
  • Cloves-4
  • Nutmeg powder- a pinch
  • Mace powder- a pinch
  • Dry fruits- 1/4 cup (raisins, cashews & almonds, mixed in equal proportion)

Method

Wash the rice well. Boil the rice until 80% done. Drain & keep aside uncovered.

Cut the cashews in halves, and the almonds in 4 pieces lengthwise. Keep aside.

Heat oil in a deep bottomed pan (nonstick preferably). Temper with cumin seeds, green cardamoms, cloves & cinnamon. Add sliced onions, fry on medium flame until light brown in color. Add rice, star anise, salt, sugar, peas, dry fruits, ghee, nutmeg powder & mace powder. Mix well. Cook covered on low flame for 10 minutes. Stir 2/3 times in between.

Remove from heat. Keep the ‘Peas Pulao’ covered after the cooking to get the nice aroma when you are going to have it.

Serve hot. Enjoy!

Note:

While mixing stir the rice gently, otherwise the rice grains will become broken.
