Methi Dana Pulao #sikandalouscuisine
Many moons ago I read this recipe online and fell in love with the idea of using methi seeds and not methi greens in a methi pulao . Year later , a few additions and modifications and here is what I did .
2 Tablespoons Methi Seeds - Soak overnight in 1 cup water.
2 Measuring Cups Rice - Soak an hour.
1 Large Onion - Sliced long.
10-15 Clack Peppercorns.
1/2 Cup Peas.
1 Teaspoon Kasoori Methi.
Strain rice and set aside.
Strain Methi Seeds , keep the water. You can use the water in the pulao or elsewhere.
Heat ghee , crackle whole spice , now add onions and cook till brown , take out a few for garnish if you like.
Next add rice and methi seeds ,saute 2-3 minutes , then add peas and cook another 2-3 minutes.Add salt.
Add 3.5 Cups water ( adjust if using methi water too , I used 1 cup ) bring water to boil , cover , reduce heat and cook till rice is done.
At that stage add in kasoori methi and cover the pot leaving it under ' DUM' till ready to eat.
This came out super delicious .
