Methi Pulav


1 cup White Rice(Basmathi or Sona Masuri)

1/2 bunch of Methi leaves/ Menthe soppu/ Fenugreek leaves

MTR Pulav Mix

1/4 cup Green peas

10-15 Coriander leaves

1 medium sized Onion

2-3 flakes of Garlic

1-2 Green Chillies

4-5 tsp Ghee/Oil

Salt to taste


Wash fenugreek leaves and keep it aside. Chop fenugreek leaves, coriander leaves into small pieces. Chop onion medium sized thin pieces. Cut green chillies into two pieces. Wash rice in water for about 2-3 times, drain the water and keep it aside.

Remove the outer cover of garlic and smash it. Add 4-5 tsp ghee/oil, smashed garlic in a pressure cooker and fry it for about 1-2 mins. Add 2 tsp MTR Pulav mix, chopped green chillies and fry. Once garlic turns golden in color, add chopped onion and fry them for about 3-4 mins in medium flame. Add washed white rice and fry it for about 1-2 mins. Add chopped fenugreek leaves, coriander leaves, green peas and fry them for about 1 min in medium flame. Add 2 cups of water, salt, mix them well and cook.(3 whistles in a pressure cooker.)

It goes well with any kind of Raithas/ Mosaru gojju. Above mentioned ingredients will serve 4-5 plates of Methi pulav.

Hi Poorvi,
My mom used to prepare pulav masala powder by grinding all the dry ingredients together Cinnamon, Cardamom, Black peppers, NutMeg, Nut meg flower, Marati moggu, Bay leaf, Star anise, Poppy seeds(Gase gase), Saunf but MTR pulav mix tastes great!
