Easy Mutter Pulav

      This is easy,simply and tasty mutter pulav and we can prepare in no time. Even if we don't know cooking also we can prepare it easily and that too tasty.This recipe i got from my friend. Don't know from where she got the recipe. If this is any one of ur recipes kindly let me know.
       I used normal rice as my hubby don't like basmati rice.So i have given the water measurement according to that.

Ingredients :
       Here cup i've used is small cup(100gms) and all the measurements according to that.

Rice1 1/4 cup
Frozen peas 1/2-3/4 cup
Onion 1(big sized)
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 tsp
Onion 1 medium size
Water 3 cups
Milk 3/4 cup
Green Chillies 2 nos
Cilantro 1/2 fist
Coriander powder 1/2 tbsp
Cumin powder 1/2 tsp
Salt Req

Seasoning :

Oil/ghee 1 tbsp ( approx)
Cinnamon 1 inch piece of 2
Cardamom 2
Cloves 2
Green Chillies 2 nos
Cashew Few
Bay leaf 1

    I am not able to take step wise pictures as i prepared in the morning time and was in a hurry to pack for my hubby lunch box.So kindly adjust with the photo clarity also.

Method :

1. Soak rice for 30 minutes.
2.Pour oil/ghee in a cooker and put the items given in the seasoning column and saute for few minutes.
3.Then add the onion and ginger garlic paste and fry till the onion becomes transparent.
4.Now add the rice and saute for few minutes so that after cooking the rice wont be sticky.
5.After that add the water,milk,cilantro,coriander powder,cumin powder and salt.
6.Once the water boils add the frozen peas and close the lid.
7.When the steam starts coming put the whistle and when first whistle is about to come reduce the flame to minimum and keep for 8 minutes (or) up to 3 whistles.
8.Now serve the hot mutter pulav with any kind of raitas.

Notes :

1.Can cook using basmati rice but have to adjust water and milk.
2.Take the water and milk measurement together.(i.e)  if water is 1 1/2 cup then milk will be 1/2 cup for 1 cup basmati rice.
3.Try not to skip milk as it will give a nice flavour to the rice.
4.In case of adding fresh peas can add even little less than what i have mentioned.
