Fresh Green Peas is the essential ingredient for Green Peas Rice. You can cook it only when Peas are in season. I still remember when I sat at a kitchen table and helped my mother to remove peas from the pod. It’s my fond childhood memory. Today I added Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil for a change. The traditional Salt only version is lovely but this Soy Sauce & Sesame flavoured version is also really good.

2 cups (*180ml cup) Japanese Short Grain Rice
100g Fresh Green Peas removed from the pod *about 1 cup
