Pea Pulav

This is a simple, wholesome and quick-fix recipe which doesn't look or taste anything like you made it in a few minutes! This goes well with spicy curries or just with some cucumber salad.
Serves 4
Rice - 2 cups (preferably, Basmati or Jasmine rice)
Green peas - 1 1/2 cups (I always use frozen green peas)
Ghee - 2 tbs
Onion - 2 (sliced)
Cardomom - 4
Cloves - 6
Cinnamon - 1'' stick
Salt - to taste
Wash and soak the rice in water for 1/2 an hour. Drain the water. Heat the pressure cooker and add 1 tbs ghee first. Fry the sliced onions till they turn golden brown. Remove the onions and drain them and keep aside. Add the remaining ghee and put the whole spices in the cooker. Now add the rice and saute for a minute. Add the green peas and saute for another minute. Now add 3 cups of water and salt to taste. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and when the steam comes, put the weight on and cook in low flame for 5 minutes.
After you open the lid, stir in the fried onion and you are ready to go!.
