METHI MATAR PULAO

Methi Matar Pulao is a delicious combination of green methi or fenugreek leaves and peas with cooked rice and spices. This time I set to make a green pulao with fresh methi leaves and peas and the result was overwhelming. All at home liked it to the core and I was totally pleased with the outcome. I made this pulao with Kohinoor Super Basmati Rice, naturally aged for 24 months, thus matured for the perfect taste and as we all know it is 100% original Pusa variety and has buttery softness rice when cooked and the grains are long and slender as well. Regarding fenugreek and peas they are a super duper pair and taste well together.

The colour of green is also pleasing to the eyes and the end product is totally healthy. As you might have studied, fenugreek or methi is good in fighting with Diabetics and peas are loaded with proteins. So these two are ideal for all age groups and is a bowl of health in itself. The spices added to it make the pulao tasty and richer and adds to the flavour. The fenugreek leaves tend to taste bitter at time, so be careful before adding them to the rice. You could wash them well before using twice or thrice to remove bitterness. This pulao will also be liked by kids and they will never find out that fenugreek is involved in the making due to addition of peas and spices. So try out this week a tasty pulao loaded with health.
