Peas Pulav





Peas pulav is one of the rich treats of north India . My hubbi ' s cousin who is a good friend of mine requested for this recipe . A good thing about pulav is that it doesn’t require any spice powder J..Hot summer is not far away to attack us again.. So letz welcome this summer with a pulav (which is never spicy J). If you want to make ghee rice, just avoid adding peas.  I love to eat pulav with a kurma  .I took a quick snap out of it as my little one was grabbing the raitha nearby :) . Here is the recipe and yummy clicks  for u..
