A flavored rice made with basmathi rice and green peas. This can be served with any spicy kurma and onion raita.


  • Basmathi Rice – 2 cups

  • Green Peas – 2 cups

  • Big Onion – 2

  • Green Chillies – 3 to 4

  • Fresh ginger chopped finely – 1 teaspoon

  • Garlic flakes chopped finely – 1 teaspoon

  • Oil – 2 to 3 tablespoons

  • Cinnamon stick – 2 small pieces

  • Cloves – 2

  • Cardamom – 2

  • Bay Leaves – a small piece

  • Salt – 2 teaspoons or as per taste


  • Wash the rice and soak it in water for about 30 minutes.
  • Chop the onion and slit the green chillies lengthwise.
  • In a pressure cooker, add the oil and when it is hot add cinnamon stick, cloves, whole cardamom and bay leaf. Fry for a while.
  • Add chopped onion, slit green chillies, chopped garlic and ginger. Fry till onion turn glossy. Add green peas and fry for few seconds.
  • Drain the water completely from the soaked rice and add it now. Gently turn the rice and stir fry till it is very hot to touch.
  • Add 4 cups of water along with a teaspoon of lemon juice and salt. Stir well. Close with lid and pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles.
  • Can be served with any spicy kurma and onion raita.


  • Instead of fresh ginger and garlic pieces, ginger garlic paste can also be used. But to keep the flavour of ginger and garlic to minimum, I used fresh ginger and garlic.
  • Also I cooked it for 4 whistles to get the pulav very soft. If you want to get rice grains separated and firm, then reduce the water quantity to 3 and half cups and cook for 3 whistles,
