peas pulaomatar pulao recipe | peas pulao recipe | green peas pulao recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. basically a white pulao recipe prepared with only matar or peas and whole spices. while some prefer to cook matar pulao with puree of pudina and coriander. however i like to keep matar pulao simple and do not mix it with pudina pulao or coriander pulao.

typically, i love all pulao recipes, because they are one pot meal for your daily lunch and dinner. in other words, i do not have to cook separately rasam and sambar for rice or curries for chapathi. just dump the vegetables, rice and spices in cooker and amazing pulao recipes are cooked in no time. i specifically love peas pulao because it takes one step even further as it cuts down the vegetable chopping requirement. i personally, like it to have as it is with raita, but unfortunately my husband always demand for dal recipes as accompaniment for matar pulao.

matar pulaofurthermore, i would like to share few variations to the recipe posted below. firstly, if you do not have pressure cooker, than you can cook rice and peas separately. basically toast the whole spices and cook the peas in a pan and mix the rice once green peas are cooked. secondly, i have used frozen peas for this matar pulao recipe. however, even fresh peas can be used but soak it for minimum 1-2 hours before using. lastly, add diced potatoes with peas to make it aloo peas pulao.

finally, do check my other rice recipes collection and pulao recipes collection. particularly, jeera rice, palak rice, carrot rice, curd rice, ghee rice, brinjal rice and tawa pulao recipe. in addition i would like to highlight my other recipes collection like,
