A unique tiffin that your kid is sure to love! Children are generally very fond of the flavour and texture of cheese, but sometimes parents find it challenging to pack cheese-based foods in the snack box as it tends to get chewy. But, this Cheese, Onion and Green Peas Pulao is a delightful option, which stays fresh in a tiffin box for five hours! Moreover, it has an interesting mix of ingredients ranging from rice and green peas to grated cheese, which makes it tasty and wholesome too. For the short break tiffin you can pack Khakhra Chivda ( Tiffin Treats For Kids ) and Healthy No Bake Cookies .

   It tastes amazing as it is! Since we use cheese it would not really taste nice with kadhi or raita. You can serve this with accompaniments like papad and achaar.

This rice is a perfect recipe for instant cooking as all the ingredients are normally available at everyone''s home..I gave this rice to my husband in his dabba for office lunch and it stayed very well for 6 to 7 hours..He loved the addition of cheese in it and praised the recipe a lot after coming back home..Thank you very much.. I will definitely make this often for my husband’s dabba..
