Ideas for garnishing the pulao rice:
- add ghee fried cashews (about 1 tablespoon) and raisins (a few)
- add chopped fresh coriander leaves (cilantro leaves) or fresh mint leaves
- add fried onions or caramelized onions (about half of a medium sized onion)
You can choose your favorite veggies of your liking, though veggies like cauliflower and broccoli get cooked too fast in the instant pot and they may get mushy. So if you wish to add them, you can stir fry them first and then add to the pulao once its cooked.
If using dried peas (you need only about half the amount), soak them in water for 6 to 7 hours prior to cooking.
You can also add corn, chopped nuts, raisins etc to the pulao if you like.
