Peas Pulav Recipe
I tried this simple to cook Peas pulav  Recipe for the first time and the taste was extraordinary. I used fresh green peas rather than the frozen / tinned peas which added extra flavour to this recipe. We had this pulav with Gobi Machurian, Yet another favourite recipe of us. Another day, I made this peas Pulav and packed it for our picnic. Everyone liked it. It also goes well along with some spicy gravy like Potato Curry.
