Pea Pulao


  • 2 tbsps sunflower oil or ghee
  • 1 large onion chopped fine
  • 1 cup fresh green peas
  • 1 cup Basmati rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 cup warm water


    • Wash the Basmati Rice well in running water and keep aside to soak for 30 minutes.
    • Heat the oil in a deep heavy-bottomed pan. When it is hot add the onions and cook till soft.
    • Add the peas and stir well.
    • Add the rice and fry for 2 minutes.
    • Add the 3 cups of water, turmeric and salt to taste to the rice and set it up to boil on a medium flame.
    • Once the water comes to a boil, reduce the flame to a simmer and cover the pan.
    • Cook till the water seems to have almost disappeared - tiny holes will form on the surface of the rice.
    • Add the 1/2 cup of warm water all over the top of the rice and cover the pan again. Simmer for another 5-7 minutes and turn off the fire.
    • Allow the rice to sit for 10 minutes and serve.
