Mutter Pulao

>> Wednesday, July 7, 2010

After a long weekend, I'm back with today's recipe... "Mutter Pulao"/ "Pilaf".. A very simple, yet delicious n aromatic dish.. I have few memories linked with Pulao.. One of them is during late fall this used to be one of the most commonly prepared dish by my mom.. But no one in family would get tired of eating.. Everytime she will make some variations in the spices and so the taste also varies as such.. When compared with Biryani, Pulao is quite forgiving, very easy to cook and yes yummy as well...

2 cups Basmati rice (soaked in water for atleast an hour)
1 cup green peas
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 green chilli (chopped)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder (optional)
1 small cinnamon stick
A couple of cloves
2 Bay leaves
1 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Cilantro (to garnish)
1/2 tsp lime juice

Cook rice with excess water. Once cooked, drain the water and let it cool. Now, heat oil and splutter cumin seeds. Add cloves and cinnamon sticks, saute until the aroma of the spices has infused through the oil. Add green peas and chopped green chillies. Saute them for few minutes. Now add turmeric powder and if required, red chilli powder too. Once the peas are cooked, add salt and turn off the heat.
Add rice to the peas mixture and mix it gently. Add lime juice and garnish with cilantro

Yummy pulao is ready to serve with some raita..!!
