cheese onion green pea pulao is a unique tiffin that your kid is sure to love! Children are generally very fond of the flavour and texture of cheese, but sometimes parents find it challenging to pack cheese-based foods in the snack box as it tends to get chewy. But, this cheese onion green pea pulao is a delightful option, which stays fresh in a tiffin box for five hours! Moreover, it has an interesting mix of ingredients ranging from rice and green peas to grated cheese, which makes it tasty and wholesome too.

cheesy green peas pulao makes it easy to add veggies to your kiddos meal which he/she might throw tantrums to consume. We have used the most basic ingredients in preparing cheesy pulao so you will not need to rush to a supermarket if your pantry is well maintained. I also make it for dinner, as it works best as a one meal dish and is tummy filling.

To make cheese pea pulao, we have soaked basmati rice for half and hour. Further, to make it, we have taken oil in a non-stick pan. You can use ghee or butter. Add cumin seeds, clove, cinnamon and bay leaves. Cook until aromatic. The whole spices add and enhance the flavor of the pulao. If you kids do not like it, you can discard once the dish is prepared. 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. Serve cheese matar pulao hot and if packing for tiffin cool a little.

Serve cheese onion matar pulao with Indian curry or pickles, roasted papad or any raita that you wish to.

For the short break tiffin you can pack Khakhra Chivda and Healthy No Bake Cookies.

Tarla Dalal    It tastes amazing as it is! Since we use cheese it would not really taste nice with kadhi or raita. You can serve this with accompaniments like papad and achaar.
