Green Peas Pulao

I always love to have this "peas pulao"- a simple mild spicey meal to enjoy.Looks fantastic and tastes delicious. This dish reminds me of my college life.This is the only dish I know to prepare during my college days and my friends used to love it. They always insists on preparing this dish whenever we have a get together in my house. Those days are golden. Now whenever I prepare this dish I miss my friends :-(

Frozen or canned Peas - 1 cup
chopped onion - 1 cup
Green Chilies - 3 slit
Cloves - 4
Cardamom - 2
Cinnamon - 1" stick
Oil - 3 tsp
Ghee - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

To Grind
Ginger - 2 small slices
