Simple Peas Pulav ( Pilaf ) Made in Rice Cooker - Rice Cooker Recipes

If you ask me what is the best invention in kitchen appliances glossary is a proper rice cooker. I own a prestige rice cooker which is my bestest friend in kitchen. This clearly tells me that I should do a separate post for that. I am using my rice cooker from the day we bought it, it has never failed me. Each time it cooks rice perfectly and fluffy.

I have started a new series called as rice cooker recipes in my blog and going to explore all the possible way to use it. This is my first recipe, a very basic and simple peas pulav. This is best served with any hot and spicy curries..I hope you will love it and ask me any questions about rice cooker.


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Onion - 1 sliced thinly
Peas - 1 cup ( I used frozen)
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tblspn
Green Chilli - 4 to 5
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Ghee - 2 tblspn
Water - 1 cup


Wash Rice in lots of water. Now Soak basmati rice for 30 mins. Drain it and set aside.

Heat ghee in a kadai.

Add in cumin seeds and let them crackle.

Add in onions and saute till they turn translucent.

Add in green chilli, ginger garlic paste and salt.

Now add in peas and mix well.

Throw in the soaked and drained rice.

Fry that in the ghee for 1 mins.

Now take your electric rice cooker.

Pour this mixture into the bowl of it and place inside the rice cooker.

Add in 1 cup of water and mix well.

Close the rice cooker and let it cook till the rice cooker turns off.

Hi Aarthi :)

First of all, your blog is awesome!! I've tried quite a few of your recipes and they've come out beautifully...thank you SO much!

Got a doubt....since I dont have a rice cooker, can I follow the same steps for stovetop cooking? Main issue is the amt of water to add to the rice.... hoep to hear from you!

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips
