Talk about quick easy and tasty tupperware food. I need to pack a tupperware lunch for my husband every morning and sometimes i really need to crack my brains for something different each day!!
I had some left over rice, some mint and coriander chutney and some frozen green peas in the freezer and i thought of making a nice minty green peas pullao!!
It goes well on its own or with some yogurt and is quite a complete meal . You can also add a variety of vegetables to it all diced finely.
Here is my simple recipe which i am sure you will all love
1 cup of boiled rice
1/4 cup of shelled frozen peas or vegetables of your choice
1/4 cup of diced onion
1/2 teaspoon of salt or to taste
2 heaped tablespoons of mint and coriander chutney(see my recipe on how to make that)
1/4 teaspoon of Nitu Didi turmeric powder
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
Heat the oil in a pan and add the onions and sautee till transparent. Add the salt and the turmeric powder and the frozen peas and cover till the peas are soft. This wont take you more than a few minutes. Add the mint and coriander chutney and sautee till you see the oil separating (that means the whole thing is well cooked). Toss in the rice and mix well till everything is blended well.Serve hot with yogurt . I packed it for my husbands tiffin!!!!
I sometimes feel verry concious writing such easy recipes…. but i feel theres a recipe which comes into use for everyone!!!
