Supereasy Pulav: Potato and Peas Pulav
When I go to college I try to eat in the Cafeteria because of the live ness. Few weeks back I happen to make few friends in the cafeteria. So we started to meet everyday for lunch and started to share about classes, teachers and on. We were a group of three; one was from Japan. For the last day of the class we all decided to meet early so that we can share our email ids, phone numbers and talk for sometime. One buddy had potluck in her class on the last day of class and decided to bring pulav. Usually many teachers organize potluck on the last day of class, which is more fun and I like it. So my buddy brought pulav to everyone and it tasted yummy. So me, and the girl from Japan started to write down the recipe and were surprised to see that the recipe was so simple to make, yet it tasted delicious. As soon as I came home I made this pulav with Kurma. Here goes the recipe!!
- Heat the rice cooker pan with oil, 1tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, ½ tsp sweet cumin (saunf), 2-3 cinnamon sticks, 2 cloves, and 2-3 bay leafs. Sauté them and add 1 Onion finely copped, ½ cup green peas, 1 chopped potato, ¼ tsp red chili powder, and 1tsp garam masala. Sauté everything together; add salt and 1 cup of Basmati rice and 1 ¾- 2 cup of water and plug on the rice cooker. I added few mint leaves (optional); I like the aroma and flavor of mint leaves.
- Serve hot with Kurma (curry) and raita.
