Garlic Methi Pulav

Photo and Recipe courtesy: Priya (my friend)

It is really strange that we come up with the most unique dishes when we don't have the regular vegetables/ groceries at home! This is exactly what happened with my friend Priya.. She came up with a dish with garlic and some methi! It was just perfect to satisfy her garlic craving:)

Ingredients:

Basmati Rice- 11/2 cup (soaked in water for ½ an hour)
Water -2 1/4 cups
Fresh Garlic – 6 cloves (minced)
Onion – ½ (fine chopped)
Methi leaves- 10 leaves (fine chopped)
Ghee-1 Tbsp
Oil -3 Tbsp
Pepper powder-2 tsp
Jeera/Cumin powder -11/2 tsp
Cinnamon -1 inch stick
Cloves -2
Bay leaf -1
Salt to taste

Cooking Directions:

-In a pan heat oil and ghee. When hot, add cinnamon stick, cloves, bay leaf and garlic. Let the garlic infuse its flavor in the oil without turning brown.
-Then add chopped onions and sauté till golden brown.
-Add pepper powder and jeera powder and sauté.
-Add methi leaves and mix well. Cook for about 3-4 minutes. Keep aside.
-In a rice cooker, add water, rice, salt and the mixture made above.
-Turn the cooker on and let it cook.
-Serve hot with raita.
