Peas Pulao Recipe | Matar Pulav | Pattani Sadam | Lunch Box Recipe

Peas pulao recipe or matar pulav recipe with step by step photos. This is a simple & easy pulao made with peas (known as ‘pattani’ in Tamil) & very few spices. The peas rice pilaf is a one pot meal prepared using a pressure cooker. I have used seeraga samba rice to make the peas pulao. You can use basmati rice instead of seeraga samba. It would be one of the perfect lunch box recipes to your hubby & kids. It can be served with raita or any veg or non-veg gravy.
