Peas Pulao Recipe – Easy Matar Pulav – Tasty one pot meal Recipe

Peas Pulao – Easy Matar Pulav – Tasty one pot meal

Peas Pulao aka Mutar Pulav, Pattani Pulavu is an easy rice dish in which rice is flavored with spices and cooked with onions & peas. Peas are sweet and they are rich in starch, fiber & protein. Frozen peas are my favorites as they come in handy on the morning run. Monday mornings (Especially after a long, two-day break) are hard for me to prepare lunch, so I usually prefer any “one pot meal“. Peas Pilaf is the easiest of all as it doesn’t involve cutting veggies and it will be ready in 20 minutes.

  1. You can add 1/2 cup of cooked potatoes, if you feel that the peas pulao is plain.

  2. I prefer cooking pulao in pan. If you are planning to cook in pressure cooker, then adjust water accordingly. Don’t let it go for many whistles for it might make the rice too mushy. Go for 2 or 3 whistles maximum.

  3. You can also prepare this dish from the leftover rice.
