Jeera Peas Pulao & Rajma Paneer Masala-MW Version

Easy peas pulao and delicious rajma paneer masala goes prefectly awesome for a sunday lunch or if u are lazy to cook,as these both dishes goes for easy microwave cooking..Also i wanted to prepare them quickly,thats y the peas pulao doesnt need anything to chop while the rajma masala goes for a simple onion-tomato paste for the gravy, else i went for canned rajma and frozen peas for pulao...Both together tastes absolutely delicious, also goes for easy ingredients..To give more flavour to the pulao,i deduced the quantity of cumin seeds for tempering to half and completed as a full teaspoon using shahjeera, the addition of shahjeera turned out this rice very much rich in flavour and tastes definitely more delicious than the usual jeera pulao..Microwave cooking depends upon the power of the microwave oven u r using for..
