Rice with Peas- Bezelyeli Pilav

This is my favorite rice like to add very small pieces of carrots too

1 cup uncooked extra-long grain white rice
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup peas
freshly ground pepper
2 cups chicken broth

Soak rice in 3 cups of warm water with 1 teaspoon of salt for 20 minutes, then drain.

In a sauce pan heat the butter and oil, add the peas and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and chicken broth, mixing well. Bring to boil, add rice and simmer, covered for 15-20 minutes or until all the broth is absorbed. Turn off the heat, uncover, place 2 layers of paper towels over the rice, and cover again. Let stand 10 minutes. Mix with a wooden spoon and serve.

I do the saute part and then place in my rice cooker.
