Tips

Basmati Rice:

  1. I have used Basmati Rice so it is enough to add 1.1/4 Water to a Cup of Rice. But if you are using Sona Masuri Rice or some other kind, you need 2 Cups of Water.

Some more tips:

  1. I have used frozen Peas so they get cooked quickly though I had added them at the end. If you are using fresh Peas, fry them along with the Onions.
