Corn Peas Rice/ Makkai Matar Ke Pulav- In Microwave

Okay!..One more dish that you can cook in microwave. Well I have started enjoying Microwave cooking now. Just add in everything together ,mix and here it is ready. Corn and peas needs very little time to cook in microwave and so i always prefer to cook Peas Corn Rice in microwave.

1 cup rice (soaked for 1 hour)
2 cups water
1 tbsp ghee/butter
1/3 cup corn
1/3 cup peas
1/2 tsp turmeric/haldi
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp lemon juice
2 chopped green chillies

Take a microwave safe bowl and add everything together. Mix all well.
Cook covered for 12 minutes
Cook another 5 minutes uncovered.
Serve hot with raita chutneys or dips.

Notes: I used frozen peas and corn, you can use fresh also but then pre-boil them.
Any kind of rice can be used- I used basmati rice.
