Basmati Rice Pulao with Peas and Cashew Nuts


From Sawaran Dhawan
Notes: Matar Pulao (green peas pulao) is one of the basic pulaos served to a guest in the Northern states of India.

Traditionally, ground spices are not added to Pulaos. They are reserved for Biryanis.

When more vegetables, including tomatoes, are added along with more spices, ground or whole, it is known as Masala Bhat i.e. Spiced Rice- in contrast to this kind, known as Flavored Rice
