Green peas is known as matar in Hindi and pachai pattani in Tamil.
Fresh, tender green peas are relatively low in calories on comparison to beans, and cowpeas. 100 g of green peas carry just 81 calories, and no cholesterol. They are good sources of protein, vitamins, and soluble as well as insoluble fiber.
It’s a good source of folic acid, vitamin K and vitamin A.
Peas pulao is generally liked by everyone. It’s one of my family’s favourite too.
Many years back, my good friend Suruchi, gave me a good tip for retaining the colour of the peas while making the pulao. She said that in order to retain the colour of the peas, the peas should be cooked separately and then added to the rice. Have been following her tip from then. It always gives me such pleasure to see medley of lush green peas and snowy white rice. Simple joys of cooking, isn’t? 🙂
