Peas pulao! who doesn’t know about it, who doesn’t like it? even kids like to safely order peas pulao when you take them to a new restaurant, because it is quite a simple dish and difficult to spoil! i somehow feel that making this in the microwave retains the colour and crunchiness of the peas, the texture of the rice, and the sweetness of the spices better than other cooking methods. The mild fragrance of condiments that emanates when this pulao cooks transforms the kitchen into a heavenly location! ensure you stir well in between so that the rice grains do not stick to each other. Serve with kadhi to make a complete meal.
