Tips for making Aloo Matar Pulao Recipe

  • Cook Aloo Matar Pulao Recipe in the pressure cooker or a thick bottom vessel, cooking in a pressure cooker will reduce the time as compared to a vessel.
  • I have used basmati rice, it will enhance the taste more as compare to other rice.
  • Check the potatoes before using it, because the potatoes can taste sweet and make the rice taste sweet.

Process before cooking the recipe

  • Wash the rice nicely with water, and soak the rice in water for 20 minutes before cooking the recipe.
  • After 20 minutes drain the water from the rice and keep it aside.
  • Chop the onions and tomatoes finely.
  • Cube the potatoes, keep the size medium so that it won’t mash into the rice while cooking.
  • I suggest to use fresh green peas instead of frozen green peas, fresh green peas will improve the taste of the rice.
