Peas Pulao Recipe -- Matar Pulao Recipe -- How to make Peas Pulao Recipe

Peas Pulao
Peas pulao needs no introduction, a very simple and easy rice recipe. Kids also like it very much and makes a good lunch box dish. 
I got all accolades from my hubby for this simple dish. I don't know whether he likes it or not so I made it very less quantity. I made it for lunch today. Every time I make such kind of rice, I have to carry forward it for dinner. But this did not, we have finished it in one session only. 
I made it with the frozen peas. If we do it with fresh peas, really awesome. This can be made in a pressure cooker or in electric rice cooker. I cooked it in rice cooker. A very simple task. This can be made with ghee or oil. We can mix both - half and half  - and make it. I wish to make it with ghee, but all ghee means the taste of ghee dominates and original taste dies.
Serve peas pulao with onion raita or any spicy curry. I served it with meal maker curry.
