    • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
    • 2 green chilies, slit
    • 1/4 cup coconut milk
    • 1 packet Saffola Veggie twist
    • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • 2 cloves

    • an inch piece of cinnamon stick
    • 1 bay leaf, torn

How to make Methi Matar Pulav

    • To begin, heat oil in a heavy bottom pan over medium heat. 
    • Add cumin seeds, grated ginger, and sauté for a few seconds.
    • Stir in the fenugreek leaves, oats, turmeric powder, and sauté until the leaves have softened. 
    • Add in the whole spices, salt, green chilies and the rice. Add in the coconut milk and 1-1/4 cups of water. 
    • Check the salt and adjust to suit your taste.
    • Bring the methi rice to a quick boil. Once the rice comes to a boil, turn the heat to low, cover the pan and allow the rice to cook along with the spices and leaves until all the water is completely absorbed.
    • Once you notice all the water is completely absorbed, turn off the heat and allow the rice to rest for about 5 minutes. 
    • After 5 minutes open the pan, add the steamed peas and serve.
    • Serve the Methi Pulao along with a Cucumber Raita for a refreshing lunch or dinner.
