Khichdi Style pulao

Workout is excellent in your health routine but muscles need protein to mend. Are you getting enough protein in your food, especially if you are a vegetarian?
Here's a recipe that mom made today inspired by a youtuber.
The addition of Moong dal in this simple pulao adds supreme wholesomeness to the dish.

1/2 cup Lima beans if in season or green peas
4 -5 Small onions
2 medium tomatoes
2 tbsps ghee
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 cups water

Spice paste (to grind):
1" ginger
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp jeera
1 tsp Saunf
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
2 medium green chilies (3-4 if they are moderately spicy or you need more spice)

1. Grind the spice mix ingredients to a paste. Keep aside. Optional to grind the onions and tomatoes too.

2. Heat ghee in a wok or pressure pan and fry onions till golden brown.
