green garlic pulao

I thought I was using green garlic, but now I realized it was actually garlic chives! Hmm.

The Pulao (pic here)

cumin seeds
mustard seeds
3 green chilies minced
1small onlion sliced thinly
ginger paste
bunch of gree... um, garlic chives chopped
2 handfuls of val lilva-mine were frozen (or beans of your choice, for protein)
big pinch of garam masala

1big cup rice, sona masoori, washed

In pressure cooker put peanut oil, then add ingredients in order given(fry the onions well). Add water and pressure cook 1 whistle. Serve with cucumber raita.

Other uses:
Goes great with potatoes.
Havent tried yet, but planning on making a pesto with garlic chives, basil, olive oil, lemon juice. Should be yummy on bread or pasta.

Update: Made the pesto as above and added pecans to that, served with fettuccine noodles. Sprinkled romano/parmesan cheese on top. (pic)
