Peas – is the most liked one by me but i rarely buy the fresh ones  and often use dry ones .The fresh ones is usually unavailable here and the frozen ones are too sweet. But day before yesterday i grabbed a pack of peas. To enjoy the taste of peas i decided to make Peas Pulao and we all like the taste of fresh ones . Always fresh stands first before processed or frozen.
