Spring onion and peas pulao

Spring onions are my latest craze...I mean, I've always liked spring onions....but of late, I've started adding it to a lot of dishes that I cook. The latest experiment in this series has been this pulao.

What you need:
Rice - 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Spring onions - 1 bunch, washed and chopped(including the leaves)
Green peas - 1/2 cup
Salt
Cinnamon - a small piece
Cloves - 4
Cardamom - 3
Green chilli - 2

Powder the cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. Take a large microwaveable bowl and heat the powdered spices along with a tsp of oil on high heat for 1 minute. Add the green chillies and chopped spring onions and heat for another 3 minutes or until the onions just start to brown.
Add the rest of the ingredients, stir well and cook for 8 minutes at 800 watts and then for another 4 minutes at 650 watts.
Let it stand for two minutes. Gently fluff with a fork.
Serve hot with any raita of your choice/pickle/chips.

My friend just told me her hands itched when she put the spring onion she'd bought in the fridge! Your pulao looks nice and uncomplicated.
