Mushroom Peas Pulav

Mushroom Peas Pulav

If you all remember this was a part of the mother’s day thali. This dish is simple and easy to make. It is non spicy, however tastes heavenly.

This is one of the all time favourite for everyone in my house. Try it once and it will surely become a part of your menu. 


Butter or Olive oil – 2-3 Tablespoon
Whole Spices – 1 each (Aniseed, Black Cardamom,Cardamom,Lavang,Bay leaf)
Onion – 1 (Thinly Sliced)
Ginger Garlic Paste – ½ Teaspoon
Green Chillies – 2 (Slit)
Mushroom – 1 Cup (Cut into halves)
Green Peas – ¼ Cup
Mint Leaves – ¼ Cup (Optional)
Milk – 2 cups
Rice – 1 Cup


Wash the rice and soak it in 2 cups of milk. If you want you can add one cup of milk and one cup of water. (My rice gets cooked in 2 cups of water so I am using 2 cups of milk, you can adjust based on how much water you generally add to cook your rice  ).

After 20 minutes, Transfer the soaked rice with milk to a electric rice cooker and allow it to cook. Meanwhile, add butter/olive oil to a kadai.

Once the butter melts/oil is heated, add the whole spices. After 30 seconds add the onion and fry well. Then add the mint leaves, green chilly and Ginger garlic paste and fry for 3-4 minutes.

Then add the mushroom and cook for 2 minutes. By this time, the rice would be 90% done. To this 90% cooked rice, add the contents of kadai and also add the green peas and cook till the light in the electric cooker changes to done. Then switch off the electric cooker and serve with any spicy gravy. 


  • I used electric cooker because it saves lot of time and milk does not spill.
  • If you want you can also use a vessel, however, it needs to be a non stick vessel and tall. Choosing a vessel like this, will avoid milk from soilling or getting burnt.
