Peas pulao, no idea, all I can make is steamed rice. :P
I'm much too fond of rice, hence almost never make it at home!

Yeah, methi seeds for tadka is a U.P. thing, I use it for all dry veggies. Actually my cooking has now become hybrid! Punju, U.P., Bong, Oriya, and broadly some South Indian hotch potch. For example, I didn't add cream to the Saag chicken, very Punju that bit, and very fattening! Would taste yummy though. Too bad, you'll never know Sabrina. :P

Ok Shirllin...here goes...recipe for Peas Pulav

Ingredients :

Basmati Rice (uncooked) - 1 cup - this needs to be soaked in water for atleast 30 min. The water has to then be drained out.
peas - 1/2 cup
onions - 1 chopped fine
clove - 4 pods
cardomom - 4 pods
cinnamon sticks - 1/2 " stick
green chillies - 4 slit length wise
Nutmeg powder - a pinch
Bay leaf - 2 leaves cut into 2
Jeera / Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil/Butter - 1 tbsp
Mint leaves (optional - I added it) - a few leaves chopped fine

Method :

1. In a pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil/butter. To this add jeera/cumin and let it crackle.

2. To this add the spices (cinnamon, cloves, cardomom, nutmeg, bay leaf) and fry for 2 - 3 min

3. Then add the chopped onions and saute till it turns pink. At this time, the spices belnd with the onions and you get a nice aroma.

4. Once the onions are sauted, add the drained rice and fry it for 2 - 3 minutes. Add the mint leaves and peas and fry it again for a further 2 - 3 minutes.

5. This whole mixture can then be cooked in a pressure cooker or microwave or rice cooker as normal rice is cooked.

6. Can be garnished with coriander & fried cashews.

It's actually pretty simple. :)

I always say that Laloo Prasad Yadav should have a tv channel dedicated to him 24-7! He is so witty and funny! And his face, shiny chubby cheeks, he kills me! I remember him talking about Maneka Gandhi when he described her as an 'up-to-date' mahila!! The Biharis love their English.

P.S. Give my hubby a paan to chew and hear him talk in Bihari, hilarious!
