Peas Rice |Indian Food Palooza

Peas rice is one of the simple and quick rice to make and can be served along with some semi spicy side dish. I made Aloo-Gobhi along with this for our dinner today. I used less spice since i feed my son as well. If you want more spice, you can adjust the spice level accordingly.
                    
Ingredients
1 Cup Basmati Rice (If you don't have, use any plain white/brown rice)
1 Cup Green peas
2 Cloves
2 Cardamom
2 Bay leaves
2 tea spoon Jeera (Cumin seeds)
1 tea spoon Ginger paste
1 Green chilli
Salt to taste
1 table spoon Oil
1 spoon of ghee
1 1/2 cups water

Method
Soak the rice in 1 cup of water for 15-20 minutes.
In a frying pan, add oil, Cumin seeds, Cloves, Cardamom, Bay leaves and allow the cumin seeds to splutter.
Then add ginger paste,green peas, Green chilli and saute for few seconds.
Add the Rice, salt and ghee and saute for 2-3 minutes.
Transfer the contents to a Rice cooker and add 1 1/2 cups water and allow to cook.
Once cooked mix well and serve hot with side dish.

Note:
If you do not have rice cooker, you can also cook in pressure cooker or cook them directly in the pan by adding the same amount of water.
You can also add Garlic paste if needed.
This recipe goes to Prerna, Kathy and Barbara for their Indian Food Palooza
