GREEN GRAM PULAO/ GREEN MOONG PULAO / பச்சை பயறு புலாவ்

Green Gram (Pachai payaru) pulao is a healthy mildly spiced healthy pulao that can be prepared in very less time.
It is a perfect flavorful pulao we can pack for lunch box too.
I have already posted few pulao/Briyani recipes and variety rice recipes here in our blog. Please check the below links for the recipes.

Actually I have used basmati rice which is always good for pulao kind of rice.  We can also use our regular rice too to make this pulao.
The flavor and taste from the coconut is great in this pulao so, don’t skip that.

PREPARATION:
Wash and Soak the basmati rice in water for minimum 20 minutes
Chop the onion and keep it ready
Grind the coconut and fennel seeds into fine paste and keep it ready.
METHOD:
First dry roast the green gram for 3 to 5 minutes or until the flavor starts to change. No need to roast till the green gram colour changes.
In a pressure cooker or hard bottomed pan add oil. Add the whole spices and sauté.
Then add chopped onion and sauté well.
Then add ginger garlic paste and sauté well. Then add ground coconut paste , turmeric powder, garama masala powder, mint leaves and sauté till the raw smell goes (around 2 minutes)
Then add water and allow it to boil. Add salt.
Once water starts boiling add the soaked and drained rice . close the id and cook for 3 whistles.
Once the pressure releaces, fluff the rice with fork and mix finely chopped coriander leaves.
Serve with any spicy gravy like paneer butter masala, capsicum masala, mushroom  masala etc.,

NOTES:
Instead of basmati rice, we canuse normal rice too.
You can even use sprouted green gram instead of dried green gram.
Adjust the spiciness by increasing/decreasing the number of green chillies.
Soaking the rice is very important to get fluffy long grained pulao.
You can even add dried coconut too to grind with fennel seeds.
Instead of ginger garlic paste, you can use ginger and garlic and grind with coconut.
Adjust the water ratio as per the rice you use. I use double the amount of rice and green gram
