Methi Pulao

I always wanted to make this dish. I usually end up making Methi chapathis when i get fresh Methi leaves. I tried out this new recipe and believe me , it came out really good. Methi being so healthy,You tend to eat more also and that fried methi taste will give you different exp.

Methi Leaves- 1 bunch
Basmathi Rice- 1 cup
Biriyani Masala powder- 1-2 tspn
Green chillies- 4
Green peas- 1 small Cup
Ginger Garlic paste- 1 tspn
Onions chopped- 1
Cumin Powder- 1 tspn
Kasuri Methi powder- 1 tspn
Lemon juice- Taste wise( Optional)
Ghee or Oil- 1 tbspn
Salt- To taste
water- 1.5 cups


Soak Basmathi rice in water and keep it aide for 15 mins.Meanwhile,take a wide pan. Add oil in to the pan. Add the chopped onion and green chillies and fry it. Add ginger garlic paste and fry it. Add Methi leaves and let to cook for 5 mins. Add Tomatoes and green peas. Let it cook for a while. Add Biriyani masala powder and cumin powder.
In to this mixture add the soaked rice and fry for 2 mins. Add salt in to it.Finally Add the kasuri methi powder( Dried fenugreek powder)
Place this whole mixture in rice cooker by adding 1.5 cups of water and cook it. Do not add more water, as tomato will also leave out some water while cooking.

Your Methi Pulao would be ready to serve with Raitha....
