Green Peas and Potato Pulao

This is a simple yet quick to make one pot meal which is a milder version suits for kids lunch box doesn't need of much masala.
My boy doesn't like rice varieties much for his lunch box so weekly once only takes either this rice or carrot rice along with some potato chips and veggie chips.Here is my version of delicious rice.

Onion(finely chopped)1no.(medium size)
Potato(small cubes)1no.(medium size)
Green peas(frozen/fresh)1/2cup
Green chilly 2nos.

Wash the rice and cook it in a pressure cooker or electric cooker with a pinch of salt and a tsp of oil.Once it is done separate the grains and keep it aside.
Heat a pan with oil and splutter the cumin seeds and add the whole garam masala.Then add the green chillies and cashews,fry it for a minute,saute the onion till transparent.
Now add the cubed potato,green peas and give it a mix.Add the powders,salt and sprinkle some water and cook it for 2-3 minutes or till the potato is cooked.
