METHI PULAO RECIPE
Pulao made with Fenugreek leaves.

Methi pulao,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. The highlight of this pulao is it doesn’t involve any grinding of masala and only cardamom is used for the flavor. The paneer biryani recipe which i posted recently doesn’t involve any grinding process.
Also check out an interesting Corn Methi pulao.

Since i made this in the morning couldn’t take proper step wise pictures .Will update soon.

INGREDIENTS:

METHI LEAVES/FENEUGREEK LEAVES 1 CUP (LOOSELY PACKED)
BASMATHI RICE 1 CUP
CARDAMOM 5-6 NO
ONION 1 NO (BIG)
TOMATO 1 NO.( BIG)
GREEN CHILLI 2
REDCHILLI POWDER 1 TSP
MINT LEAVES FEW
OIL 2-3 TBLSP

METHI PULAO
METHOD:

  • Thinly slice the onions and finely chop the tomatoes.
  • In a pressure cooker add oil and add the cardamom.
  • Slit the green chillis and add this and add the sliced onions.
  • Saute for few minutes, the onions have to be crunchy ,so do not overcook.
  • Add the tomatoes and saute for few minutes and throw in the chilli powder and salt.
