After the long trip for my sons birthday celebrations, I am back to work. Hence a long gap in updating the posts. The celebrations went well, slightly spoilt by the heavy rains in chennai during that time. My work is too heavy nowadays, thats all due to the fall back in the IT industry. Whatever may be, life has to go on. Ok here comes the recipe for Green Peas mushroom pulao.
Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Green Peas - 1 cup
Mushroom(Minced) - 200 gms
Onion (Big) - 1 minced.
Green Chillies - 2 slightly cut in the middle.
Cinnamon - 2
Clove - 2
Bay leaf - 1 (I don't like it so i didn't add it. If you like, you can add it)
Pearl Onion- 20
Garlic - 20
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Green Chillies - 10 (depends on your spicy level)
White Pepper - 1 tsp (I had white pepper, if don't have you can add, black pepper even)
Grind all the ingredients mentioned to grind, to a coarse paste.
In the kadai add 1 tbsp of ghee and add the cinnamon and clove.
Add the onion, green chillies and saute well. Once the onion becomes translucent, add the ground paste.
Saute well till the raw smell goes off, add the mushroom and green peas.
Add the basmati rice and saute well for sometime.
Transfer the contents to a cooker (electric rice cooker will do good) and add the water, salt and 1 tsp of ghee. Cook it for 10 mins in low flame after the first whistle.
Serve hot with onion raitha or veg kurma.
