BM #99 Day 2 - 

Today we have B for Black Eyed Peas Pulao, a nutritious, flavorful and easy to make. It works perfect for a lazy meal or a lunch box too.

I found the addition of pav bhaji masala made all the difference. My family loves the fried onion garnish with this pulao. 

Ingredients -

Basmati Rice 1 1/2 cups
Black Eyed Peas 1 cup
Carrot and Peas 1 cup
Salt, Turmeric and Chopped Mint as needed
Pav Bhaji Masala 1 tsp + more if needed
Seasoning (Butter 1 Tbsp, Cumin Seeds 1 tsp)
Garnish with fried onions

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak basmati rice for 10-15 minutes.

Soak and boil the black eyed beans. [I skipped the step and just boiled the beans on stove top for 10 minutes, washed and drained for use.]

Power on the the Instant Pot with the liner pot in place. Set it to 'Saute' mode. When the display changes to 'hot', add butter and cumin seeds.

Add in the vegetables and the beans from step 2.

Sprinkle salt, turmeric, Pav Bhaji Masala and chopped mint. Mix well and add the drained basmati rice.

Add about 2 cups of water. Close the lid. Set it to 'Manual' mode for 4 minutes.

Naturally releasing the pressure after 10 minutes. Fluff well and serve it hot with Boondi Raita and fried onions.
