[methi leaves fresh / kasoori methi ] iam using cooker here. its up to you which ever big thick bottom vessel to use. 1. to start, add 3-4 tsp oil, garam masala ( you can use powerdered, but like to use as is, or little crushed), ginger garlic paste. 2. then add methi leaves. (this takes a bit longer time to fry, so iam adding before i add onions) 3. after 2-3 min of frying, add onions and green chillies.little salt.fry these till glossy to golden brown. 4. then add some chopped tomatoes. fry till it gets mixed very well in to the masala. it starts leaving the oil aside, means it is done. taste this masala once, if you feel bitter, you can add 1-2 tsp of gram flour. fry this for few more minutes. be careful, dont burn or let stick to the bottom of the pan too much., add the rice, fry this for 1 min or so. then add the water. check for the taste. if you require to add some more salt, u may add this now. 6.then close the cooker lid, medium flame, let for 3 whisles. and you are done with your methi pulao. i love this receipe, easier to cook, tasty as well.
