Take a pressure cooker and pour oil into it. Add bay leaf, cinnamon and cardamom till they pop up.
Add cashew nuts and fry till they turn light brown in color.


Add onions and green chillies and fry for 5 mins.


Add ginger-garlic paste, salt and biryani masala(Take a mixer and add all pulao masala ingredients and prepare a powder) and mix well.
Add basmati rice, coriander leaves and the peas to it and combine so that the rice gets complete flavour of the ingredients.
Keep it on medium flame for 5 mins.
