Peas Pulao Recipe | Simple Lunch box Recipe

Green peas are one of favorite and I try adding it in most of the rice varieties. Now am hooked on to make a rice variety which is completely dedicated to my green colored love… this recipe I make is as simple as a pulao and can be done in just 15 minutes for a one pot meal.

This pulao can be served as such with a cup of raitha. Today I served with Butter Chicken (recipe coming soon). You can even try any of the dry curries (click here for recipe
