Peas Rice - a quick one pot meal

The shops and market near the place I live in have a plentiful supply of fresh green peas during this time of the year. Once you shell the peas, having them handy in the fridge is a real blessing when you are trying to make something quickly.

What you need:
Rice - 1 cup
Green peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1, chopped fine
Cloves - 6
Cardamom - 5
Star anise - 3
Cinnamon - a small piece
Peppercorn - 8
Ghee - 3 tsp
Water - 3 cups
Salt

Powder the cardamom, clove, cinnamon, pepper and star anise in a blender. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker. Add the powdered spices and fry for a minute. Stir in the chopped onion and fry till brown. Add the green peas, rice and salt. Mix well and heat for a minute or two. Add water and cook till two whistles.

Serve hot with raita and chips/papad.
