“Methi mutter corn pulao”. This is a very simple yet delicious recipe with flavorful spices and rice.
Cooked green peas- 1/2 cup
Cooked sweet corn kernels- 1/4 cup
Chopped fenugreek (methi) leaves- 1 cup
Cooked white long grain rice- 1 1/2 cups
Thinly sliced onion- 1/4 cup
Ginger paste- 3/4 tsp
Green chilli paste- 3/4 tsp
Cinnamon – 1/2 inch
turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a non stick pan, add pepper corns, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and sliced onions, sauté on a medium flame for 1-2 minutes. Add turmeric powder, ginger and chilli paste and sauté for 30 seconds.
Add cooked green peas, sweet corn kernels and chopped fenugreek leaves. Sauté again for 3-4 minutes. Add 2 tbsp of water if it becomes very dry. Add salt according to your taste. Once everything is cooked. Add the cooked rice, mix well. Adjust salt to your taste and serve hot with yogurt or just plain.
P.S. I soaked the rice in water for about 10 minutes then drained the water completely. I added 2 cups of water to 1 1/2 cups of rice and cooked it in a rice cooker.
