Found the recipe on an Indian cooking website & believe it to be the same dish that my friend Raksha used to make for me.

Great dish! This dish was very flavorful, but not too spicy. Because there was a comment that the rice was undercooked, I allowed the rice to soak longer and it probably was on the flame a little more than 10 minutes. Everyone devoured this dish: my husband, the rice lover, me who isnot so wild about it, our guests, and their teens who can be picky eaters. THis is a recipe which i will be making again and again.

- 1 cup shelled green peas
- 1 cup potato, peeled and chopped fine
