Peas Pulav

I learnt this from my husband. Yes!!! This is one of my favourite dishes prepared by him. At bengaluru we used to get lots of fresh green peas in the month of December and January and he used to prepare it for me once in a weak.

Another key thing I observed while his cooking , he uses Electric rice cooker for any kind of Rice item. It well cooks rice and maintains perfect shape. So if you have a electric rice cooker better go for it else its good with pressure cooker as well(As I do).
