Mint peas pulao recipe – pudina matar pulao- easy pressure cooker rice recipes

     As I cook early in the morning to pack the lunch box for my hubby, such rice varieties is really easy to make and also very convenient for carrying. So I do make different rice varieties playing with different ingredients and the pressure cooker really comes in handy everyday.

    So in this recipe I decided to make the peas pulao by adding the mint to make it more flavourful. I usually make it mild as my family likes it that way. But you can make it more spicy by adding more chillies and garam masala etc. Or you can even serve it with some spicy side dish.

     We all liked this rice variety and I hope to make this quite regularly now.
