METHI PULAO RECIPE

Pulao made with Fenugreek leaves.

    This is a simple and flavorful pulao made in jiffy and perfect one for lunch box also. I learnt this recipe from my friend who makes this so often, and the highlight of this pulao is it doesn’t involve any grinding of masala and only cardamom is used for the flavor.
