Method :-
Sutupa used gobindo bhog rice which is a short grain flavoured type of speciality of Bengal but may be you will be little hard to get it so try it with basmati rice. ( I use tilda basmati long grain )
Soak the rice for 30 min. Drain and pat dry the rice. 
Now take a fry pan and take ½ tbsp of ghee and fry the mung dal till little brown. 
Keep aside.In this pan fry the cashew. Now take a pressure cooker or heavy button pan. 
Heat 2 tbsp ghee now torn the bay leaves add with it cardamom, cinnamon , whole red chilly, cumin, black pepper. 
When the whole spices starts to crack add the green peas. Now add the basmati rice, tomato puree, turmeric powder, silted green chilly, pulao mix or shahi garam masala powder powder. 
Mix the masala well with the rice and stir for two minute. 
Now add the fried dal. Mix well. And then add 7 to 8 cup of hot water. Cover the lid. Cook for 1 to 2 whistle. Open the lid. 
It will be dry like pulao and not liquidy like ordinary Khichdi
