    dumbell579's Note:

    This Pakistani side dish is superb, it goes great with pretty much anything and is easily enjoyed by itself too. Serve with some yogurt or achar and it's great! It may look a little overwhelming to make but it's actually quite easy.

    4. 4
      Fry for about a minute or so.

    7. 7
      Add the peas and chicken stock and let it warm up but not to a boil.

      Excellent! The only things that I did different is that I used basmati rice, didn't add the chili powder, and as soon as the liquid was boiling well with the rice, I covered it and put it into a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes. Turned out perfect!

      Made for Spring 2010 PAC I liked this very much, however, for me, it came out a bit too mushy, but I accept full responsibility for that, I may have overcooked the rice. The flavor was terrific and I will make this again.
