Green Peas Pulao

Basmathi Rice - 1 cup
Onion - 3/4 cup, sliced lengthwise
Garlic - 4 cloves, chopped
Boiled Peas or Frozen Peas - 1 cup
Green Chilies - 2, finely chopped
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cloves - 2
Cinnamon - 1/2 inch stick
Bay Leaf - 1
Oil - 1 tbspn
Salt to taste

Clean, wash and soak the rice for approx. 30 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon and bay leaf. Saute for a minute and add onions, garlic and green chilies. Sauté until the onions turn translucent.
Add the drained rice and cook on a slow flame for 2 minutes. Add 2 cups of hot water and salt and mix well. Lower the flame as much as possible, cover the pan and cook till the rice is almost done (cook till most of the liquid is absorbed). Gently stir in the boiled peas. Cook for some more time till the rice is done. Serve hot.
If you are using rice cooker transfer the entire content to the cooker and cook till the rice is done. Serve hot with any gravy of your choice.
