Next we have added onion and green chilli paste, cooked them and add soaked rice. Saute the rice and make sure it doesn’t stick to bottom of the pan. Add green peas and water. Cover and cook for 5 mins while stirring occasionally, do not leave it unattended in case burns. Add cheese and coriander for refreshing flavors, gently mix.
