Corn and Peas Pulao

We love to have pulao in our house and when my aunt visited us from Delhi she made this corn and peas pulao. We loved this pulao especially the kids loved eating the sweet corn and peas. We make peas pulao regularly since it's a favorite now we have another favorite!

8. Now add the drained basmati rice and salt. Add the lemon juice.
9. Add 3.5 cups of water and add the chopped coriander leaves and close the pressure cooker.

10. Pressure cook for 3 whistles, simmer after the first whislte.
11. Once the pressure releases, open the lid and fluff it up.

Serve with some nice curry. We had it with tasty chicken curry!

Corn & Peas Pulao

1. Use a good quality basmati rice. We usually add 1:2 ratio rice to water, you can follow what you normally do since the amount of water added changes with each brand of rice.
2. If you don't want to add coconut milk, skip that and you can add 4 cups of water.

Until next time,
