How to Make Green Peas Chicken Pulao

  • Mix cleaned chicken with curd, garam masala, dhania powder, chilli powder, haldi powder, 1 tsp of ginger and garlic paste, chilli powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper in a bowl and set aside.
  • Wash coriander and green chillies, grind them together to a stiff green paste. Keep aside.
  • Take a large non stick pan and heat 2 tbsp ghee/oil and add 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 small onion cut lengthwise, 2 cardamoms, 2 cloves, 2 pieces cinnamon and fry till the onions turn slightly brown.
  • Now add the washed long grain basmati rice, 1 tsp salt and peas, stir for about 5 minutes and keep at a low flame.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pressure cooker bottom. When the oil is warm enough, add onions, 1 cardamom, 1 clove, 1 stick cinnamon, 1 tsp cumin seeds, mint leaves.
  • Stir fry for few minutes, add 1 tsp ginger and garlic paste.
  • Increase heat and add the chicken.
  • Add the green paste and stir well.
  • Stir under low heat by partially closing a lid, till the chicken is just about cooked, care should be taken not to overcook the chicken.
  • Add salt to taste (be on the saltier side, as the rice will reduce the salt later).
  • Now add the rice and add water just about covering the surface of the whole mixture (the more the water from the surface, the softer the rice will turn out).
  • Cap the cooker and keep on medium flame till you hear two whistles.
  • Switch off. Open after pressure reduces.
  • Serve hot.
