Matar Pulao ( Peas Pulao)

Ingredients :

1. Long grain rice ( soaked in water for 30 minutes)- 1 cup
2. Fresh Peas- 1/2 cup
3. Jeera (cumin) (optional)- 1/2 tsp
4. Salt- 1 pinch
5. Oil
6. Bay leaf- 1 long
7. Cloves- 4 to 5

Procedure :

First drain the rice and add salt and 2 and 1/2 cups of water to it. Cook the rice over medium flame. Keep it covered. Now fry 2 tbs oil in a kadhai and add jeera, bay leaf and cloves to it. Let them start crackling, add peas and fry for few minutes (do not over fry peas, let them be green). Keep checking the rice continuously. If the water dries up add a little more. Remove the rice when done. Drain the rice if any water is there and add it to the fried peas and mix well.
If you do not like the brownish color of the jeera then do not add it to your Peas Pulao.
