Peas lemon rice pulao

rice with lemon and peas
Like any other house hold we have two opposite poles in ours too.  Onion haters and onion lovers,  pilaf hoggers and lemon rice diggers.  Now when it gets crazy  and when you don’t want to make a lot of dishes or just want to make a quick version.. I often get into trouble. With wanting both the poles satisfied it’s a tough choice to make. This stems  up a lot of experiments in my kitchen lab.
One of the best experiments which seem to please all the palates of the house and the guests us a mix-up of two different recipes.
The Mutter pulao from the north Indian cuisine and the Lemon rice from the south Indian platter.
 
 
The speciality of the recipe is that’s peas adds a rich fibre  content element to the dish and the Lemon a zing to the dish.  This dish works extremely  well on its own or combined with a dal, korma  or stir-fry.
It’s a perfect lunchbox recipe which stays well.  Moreover it is a make life easy recipe  with no compromise  on health as you can stir up this storm with a bag of frozen peas,  some leftover rice and a few whole spices.
