Green Peas Pulao

Green Peas Pulao | Matar Pulao Recipe

Green Peas Pulao is a simple and aromatic dish which can be prepared within 30 minutes. The process of making this pulao is very easy. Adding mint, coriander leaves to the rice gives a wonderful flavour. I prepared this peas pulao for the first time and it turned out very well. Here we served this pulao with onion raita, but you can also have this with any veg or non-veg curry.
