Mushroom Peas Pulao

Mushroom Peas Pulao, is one of the easy rice preparation. My husband is a big fan of mushrooms. Almost   all weekends I prepare mushroom dishes. This is one such weekend special. You can even pack this for your kids lunch box as it is going to be less spicy and easy to make too. Kids will definitely love it.

Basmati Rice - 2 Cups (Appx. 1/2 Kg)
Mushroom - 800 gm.
Fresh Green Peas - 200 gm.
Onion - 5 No.
Green Chili - 3 No.
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tbsp.
Clove - 4 No.
Cinnamon - 2 inch piece
Green Cardamom - 3 No.
Bay Leaves - 2 No.
Lemon - 1 No.
Ghee - 2 tbsp.
Oil - 2 tbsp.
Salt to taste

1. Wash the basmati rice and soak it in water along with one bay leaf for minimum half an hour.
2. Thinly slice the onions and slit the green chilies. Clean, wash and chop the mushrooms. Keep the whole spices and fresh green peas ready. 
3. Heat the pressure cooker and add Ghee + Oil. Once hot, add the whole spices i.e, cloves, cinnamon, green cardamom and bay leaf. Fry for few seconds. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell vanishes.
4. Add the sliced onions and green chilies and saute till the onions turn golden brown color.
5. Add the mushrooms, peas, salt and mix well
6. Drain the water from basmati rice and add it to the pressure cooker and give it nice mix, so that it is mixed well with mushrooms and peas. Add 3 Cups of water. (Measurement : For 1 Cup Rice - 1.5 Cups of Water)
7. Stir the rice occasionally till the rice is half cooked. You will see the rice rises up and no water will be seen. At this stage, add the lemon juice and close the pressure cooker and place the weight. Cook it on low flame for 10 minutes. (Note: Need not wait for whistle). Switch off the flame.
8. Once the pressure is completely reduced, open the pressure cooker and Mix the rice. That's it! Pulao is ready.
Yummy Mushroom Peas Pulao is ready to serve with any raita or masala.
