Pudina Pulav (Mint Pulav)

Dinner is ready! This was up for grabs yesterday night and everyone of my folks enjoyed it.

What you need to make Pudina Pulav

Spices to be used

  • Refer to the same named section under Vegetable Pulav under the category Rice Dishes on my blog
Rest of the ingredients

  • Rice - 250 gms
  • Onion - 1 big
  • Pudina leaves - 200 gms
  • Peas (optional) - a few maybe 25 gms - 50 gms
  • Coriander - 5-6 strands
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 3 tsp
  • Water - double the measure of rice

Preparation for making Pudina Pulav

  • Wash the rice (I do it 3 times).
  • Cut onion into big slices. You want to be able to get the onion in your mouth and experience its taste when you eat the pulav
  • Wash and chop the coriander into very small confetti.
  • Wash and coarsely chop the pudina leaves (not too small)
  • Grind all the spices together.
Method to make Pudina Pulav

  • Heat a pressure cooker and put the oil into it.
  • Add the onion to the oil and allow it to fry till soft.
  • Now add the coriander in and allow it to fry a little. Gives it a nice taste. You could optionally put it in just before closing the lid of the cooker.
  • Add the pudina leaves and fry it a little.
  • Now drop in the peas.
  • Put the rice in and the ground spices and stir everything together and allow it all to shallow fry.
  • After around 5 minutes add the water.
  • Add salt as much as required (yeah you got to taste if you cant do it just by seeing).
  • As soon as it starts boiling close the lid of the cooker and let it all steam up.
  • Your Pudina Pulav will be ready :)

My fundas
  • Well there are no fundas except I somehow like chips with this Pulav rather than a Raita. Wonder why?
