Peas Pulao

This is an easy way to make rice more exciting. Typically, Basmati rice would be the best, the aroma is unbeatable, but use whatever white rice is available.

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 12oz package frozen peas
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 small stick cinnamon
  • 1 clove garlic(minced): optional
  • 2 to 3 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp oil (more if you like)
  • Heat oil in a deep pan and fry onions till slightly brown. Add cloves, cinnamon, bay leaves and garlic and stir. Add rice and stir for 2 to 3 mins. The rice should be coated with the oil. Add 2 cups water and allow the pot to come to a boil. Add peas.Stir, lower heat and simmer covered until the rice is cooked. Let it stand uncovered until extra water evaporates.
