Coriander Pulav

With two new additions to my kitchen-Mallika Badrinath's Tiffin Varieties and Rice Delights, there will more of recipes tried from the books and Coriander Pulav is the first one..I changed the recipe a bit according to my taste buds


1 cup basmati rice
A small piece of Cinnamon
2 Cardamoms
2 Cloves
Salt to taste
1/4 cup peas
2 medium sized potatoes cut into small pieces
2 tbsp oil
2 small tomatoes

Grind to a paste-

1 medium size bunch of coriander leaves
1/2 tsp ginger paste
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp grated coconut

Soak the basmati rice for 1/2 hr. Heat oil, add the spices, tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes are done. Add the chopped potatoes and mix well. Add the masala and cook on low flame for about 3 minutes. Add the rice and fry for a minute.

Add salt, peas and 2 cups of hot water and pressure cook till everything gets mixed well and rice gets cooked.

Serve with raita. Coriander pulav is a good variety in lunch boxes too..
