Simple Lunches ~ Potato - Peas Pulao


Today is the last day of the blogging marathon #13 and here is another simple rice recipe. I got this recipe from a family member and is like a cross between pulao (because of the spices) and lemon rice. 
Here is a recap of what I blogged so far this week under the theme "Kids' Lunches - Rice".
Spinach - Soya Rice
Lima Beans Pulao
Paneer - Dryfruit Rice
Plantain Rice
Carrot - Beans Rice
Chana Pulao     

Ingredients:
1 cup Basmati rice
2 big sized potatoes
1/2 cup peas (I used frozen)
Salt to taste
Juice from a small lime
Cilantro to garnish
For tadka:
2 Tbsp oil, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 2 one inch cinnamon pieces, 2 - 3 cloves, 2-3 green chillies slit lengthwise, 1 bay leaf, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder (optional)

Preparation:
* Cook rice adding 2 cups water.
* Peel, cube and cook the potatoes. Potatoes should still hold their shape without turning mushy.

Method:
Heat oil and add all the tadka ingredients. Fry them and add the vegetables. Saute them for a few seconds and then add rice and salt. Mix well and turn off the stove. Add lemon/ lime juice, mix well and garnish with cilantro leaves. It can be served on its own or with yogurt.

because potatoes and rice are both starch, never think of putting them together but I guess if you are vegetarian, this is natural combo
