Rice pulav with tutty fruity, peas and carrots

Tonight, I had an unexpected visitor- Amit! Didn't have much time to cook, especially with Yashi cranky in the evenings. Decided to make palak paneer,pulav, dal and rotis. Pulav turned out good. Sadly couldn't click pic :( Star anise and tutty fruity and carrots give it a distinct sweet flavor.

Rice pulav with tutty fruity, peas and carrots

1 1/2 cups rice picked and washed
3 cups water
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Oil or ghee as preferred
1 bay leaves
1 cardamom pod
1 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
1-2 cloves
Raisins and cashews a handful
1/4 tsp haldi optional
1 cup peas
1 large grated carrot
1/4 cup or lesser tutty fruity

Heat the oil in a pressure cooker.  Add the garam masala and let it splutter. Lower the heat and add the veggies, tutty fruity and  dry fruits. Continue to fry for 2-3 mins. Add rice and fry a little more. This will begin sticking to the bottom because we are using less oil. Add hot water (exactly double the measure of rice), add salt and pressure cook for one whistle. Wait till the pressure is gone, open cooker and turn with spatula. Serve hot.
