Rice is one of the mostly liked foods consumed by the majority of people. It is also a popular main dish that is widely consumed in South Asia. It is extremely healthy and nourishing food and an essential healthy diet that contains so many vitamins & minerals. It has been likely that world's half population live entirely or partly on rice, where as 90% of the world's outcome is developed & used in Asia. It can be used to cook both as Savory & Sweet. 



Palao is basically a dish that is combined with all the ingredients like, vegetables, mutton, chicken; beef curry and cooked together with rice.

Peas Palao is a rich, aromatic & scrumptious dish. It is my all time favorite. It is one of the mostly cooked savory dishes in my kitchen, esp. when when I am lazy and don't just want to cook. lol.. It's a complete balanced dish that can be eaten alone or accompanied with raita. Spices can be adjusted acc to your taste. This dish is truly a wonderful dish with the natural realistic flavor of peas that makes the dish excellently delicious. Here goes its step by step recipe:

Procedure:

First of all take a pan, heat oil, and add the whole spices, let them splutter. Next the chopped onions. Fry until onions are golden brown. 

Tip: The color of palao is directly proportional to the degree of brown color u give to the onions while frying them. 

Then add garlic paste, followed by all other spices and peas. Stir & fry the peas for few minutes. Add green chilies, chopped coriander & mint leaves.

Then add 2 glasses of water & let it boil. When water starts boiling, drain the soaked rice, and add in boiling water. Stir gently, to avoid rice from breaking. Let it cook on high heat for few minutes & then lower the heat to medium.

Check the salt in water & feel the saltiness. If it is just alright then it means the salt is too little. Add more salt until u feel the salt is bit more than required, because rice will need the salt too :)

Cover the pan & let the rice cook on medium heat, until water diminishes. Stir in between.

When all the water is dried up, lower the heat, seal the pan with a wet towel on the cover, and keep it for 10 minutes. And yeshhh... matar or peas palao is readdyy :)
