Methi Rice( Pulao )

Methi Rice

This one is my personal favorite. I must say, though i knew the dish i perfected the method from one of my best friends Preethi. So thanks to her, today i can share the same in my blog. I love the sweet aroma of basamati rice and a slight bitterness due to methi and nice belnd of spcies which deliver a unique taste to this dish. If you are carving for some rice dish this one might just come in as handy. Enjoy it in your lunch or dinner.
