Green Peas Pulao / Pilaf

Pilaf / pulao is a simple form of making rice dishes mixed with meat or vegetables. Mine is a similar version of biryani, which is born once during usual experiments in the kitchen. So you can call it "green peas biryani" too. I made this for dinner with butter chicken, and was loved by everyone. It has been long since I participated in any blog event, so after a long time, sending this to Monthly mingle hosted by Nag's.
