Bataani baath / Peas Rice

Bataani baath is a simple rice dish which can be prepared in a jiffy. This happens to be my daughter’s favorite so I keep preparing it often when peas is available at economical price.

1 cup rice ( I used sona masuri, basmati can be used as well)
1/2 cup peas
1 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp jeera
1 tsp of oil
For grinding
1 green chilli, roughly chopped
2 tbsp mint leaves
2 tbsp grated coconut
1/2 tsp jeera
5-6 peppercorns

What to do with all this!?!
Heat oil in a cooker pan. Once it heats add jeera.


Once jeera is fried, add the onion.


Fry till they are pinkish. Now, add the peas. Fry it for a minute.


Then, add the rice. Make sure you wash it well before adding. Fry the rice for 2 mins.


Grind chilli, mint leaves, coconut, jeera, peppercorns to form a smooth paste.
Add it to the rice.



Add 2 cups of water and salt to taste. Pressure cook it. Wait for the cooker to cool.


Just before serving add a tbsp of ghee and mix the rice. This gives a nice aroma. This step is completely optional.
Enjoy your peas rice with this salad.
