This recipe is my own creation. This is my entry to Sharmi's JFI - Rice event. The theme is Rice. This is for the month of September. Indira of Mahanandi started Jihva For Ingredients. Thanks Indira and Sharmi for hosting. Really its very simple and easy rice dish to prepare. I prepared this pulav with leftover carrots and green peas with basmati rice. Here is my recipe:

Carrot Peas Pulav:
Prep time : 30 minutes (to soak the rice)
Cooking time : 45 minutes
Serves : 4
Cuisine : Andhra

2 cups basmati rice
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp clarified ghee or butter
2 Elachi
2 Lavangi
1" piece dalchini
2 bay leaves
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
4 green chillies (slit them into length wise)
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
few curry leaves (optional)
1 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup green peas
salt as per taste
3.5 cups of water
finely chopped coriander leaves for garnish (optional)
chopped pudina for garnish (optional)

Method :
1. Soak the basmati rice for 30 minutes.

2. Heat oil and butter in a kadai, Once heat, add lavangi, elachi, bay leaves and dalchini, saute for few seconds, add green chillies, curry leaves and ginger garlic paste, again saute for few more seconds on low heat.

3. Now add chopped carrots and green peas, mix, fry for 5 minutes on low heat.

4. Add soaked basmati rice, mix gently, fry for 2 minutes, add water, coriander leaves, mint leaves and salt, mix, cook until Rice cooks completely, stirring once or twice between.

5. Serve with basic gravy or Cucumber Raita.

Note : 1) I prepared this rice in electric rice cooker.
2) Here i didn't use coriander leaves and pudina leaves. If we use, then we can get extra flavors.
3) You can use chopped onions also. You have to fry onions after spices.
