Mint and Green peas Pulao

This yet another simple and flavorful pulao in my kitchen which is a one pot meal ideal for lunchbox and parties.I have lot of mint plants in my backyard and before the peak winter starts I wanted to use the leaves.Yesterday I made this pulao and here follows the flavorful recipe.........


Basmathi rice11/2cups
Onion(thinly sliced)2nos.(medium size)
Ginger&garlic paste11/2tsp
Green peas1/2cup
Garam masala powder1/2tsp
Lemon juice11/2tsp
Saltto taste
To Grind
Mint leaves1cup
Green chilly5-6nos.
To Season
Cinnamom(pattai)1 inch piece
Star anise1no.
Bay leaf1no.


                               Soak the basmathi rice for 15 minutes and grind the mint leaves,green chillies and coconut to a fine paste.
Heat a pressure pan with oil and ghee,season it with the spices given "to season".Add the cashews and fry the onion till transparent,then ginger&garlic paste.
Now add the ground paste,garam masala powder,saute it for a minute till the raw smell goes off.
Add 13/4 cups of water and let it boil,once the water is boiled add the soaked rice and green peas,cook it for one whistle in a medium flame.Then keep it in the low flame for 5 minutes.Open it after the pressure subsides and finally add the lemon juice and fluff it with a fork gently.
Serve it with raitha,pickle or chips.

  • Instead of using ginger&garlic paste it can be grind along with the mint leaves.
  • Coconut milk and tomato can also be added for extra rich flavor and taste.
  • Some times I add coriander leaves along with the mint leaves.
