Peas Pulao is the recipe you should try if you have never tried making Indian food. If there has ever been a recipe that is ridiculously easy to make but has ravishing results, then this is definitely the one!
Peas Pulao is one of the first few recipes that I ever tried my hands on. Pulao being synonymous with Sunday lunch at home, my family has experimented with a huge number of pulav recipes over the years. Peas Pulao was a go to when we spent the whole Sunday outdoors and came back home all exhausted, just wanting some food before we hit the bed. Some food, but comforting food.
This situation always called for dad. A family outing meant a fatigue-bug bitten mom who had the energy to do nothing but unpack stuff we got home and clean! Yes, my mom has an OCD (I think) with cleaning. This meant that dad would come to our rescue and whip up something delicious. The man who drove us around all day would still manage to get in the kitchen and cook for us. In retrospect, peas pulao was probably what he made when he was too tired to cook!
Nevertheless, it would be finger-licking good. The fragrance of the whole spices getting roasted in ghee would spur our hunger pangs on and we would start screaming out to dad, “Daddy, we are hungry”. Dad would not pay heed to us and continue to work his magic in the kitchen. The addition of basmati and the aroma of basmati getting cooked was just fuel to the fire. And just when we thought we could no longer bear the hunger pangs, Dad would bring us, our plates of this simple, piping hot peas pulao. All exhaustion forgotten, we would savor every spoon of the delicious rice.
