Matar Pulav - Winter Recipe.
A one pot meal to satisfy your hunger cravings. Perfect for a Sunday Brunch to have it with raita or curd.
Heat oil in a kadhai. I have taken one with the lid. You can use any.
Once the oil is heated, add cumin seeds, chopped green chillies, bay leaf and cloves. Sauté for a while.
Now add peas and cook them for 1-2 minutes. Let it cook in oil for a bit.
Next we will add soaked basmati rice. Drain the water and add the basmati rice. Stir it gently and mix it well with the peas.
Make sure to stir it gently otherwise rice will break. Now add the masalas. Add haldi, lal mirch, garam masala and salt.
Add 2 katori water and close the lid.
Cook the rice on low flame for 10 minutes. In between check once.
Once the rice is properly cooked, toss it with a fork and be a gentle. We don't want to break the rice and want it to be fluffy.
Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with raita or curd.
It's important to soak rice in water for at least 30-45 minutes.
Toss it gently and don't touch it again and again with a spoon. It will break the rice.
Adjust the spices according to your taste and preference.
