Kwik Fix Series # 3 - Peas Pulav

Back after a short break! Actually we are about to move to a new city and at the verge of winding up things here. So I should say, I'm missing the enthu to try out new recipes. But that's never going to keep me away from my blog and will try to update with some simple recipes.

It's gonna be really hectic till we move and set up our new home. But still, it's lot of fun. New place and new friends. Looking forward to it and if we get settled in a place for a long time, it would start boring after a while; specially when it is not your native place. It is like, we are changing home every 6 months! I started loving to go around and look for new communities and it is altogether a great hobby ;) Better to look at it this way!

This is one more addition to my kwik fix series and it is really quick and easy. If you do not have the time for a side dish, you can have it with plain curd. I normally serve it with a north Indian gravy. I would say there are 100 different ways of making a pulav and each method gives one new taste. This is one such version and I would post variations in the time to come.


Basmathi rice - 1 cup
Peas - 1/2 to 1 cup
Jeera - 2 tsp
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Cloves - 3
Cardomom - 1
Slit green chillies - 3
Salt to taste


1. Soak the rice in 1.5 cups water for 5 to 10 min and cook.
2. Microwave the peas until done; if you do not have a microwave, cook it on stove top till done.
3. Heat ghee, add jeera, cloves, cardomom and green chillies. Fry a bit and mix peas.
4. Cool the rice a bit and mix with peas. Reheat and serve hot. Jeera, ghee and peas adds a great flavour and this simple dish is sure to impress everyone.
