Methi Mutter Pulav / Fenugreek Peas Rice

This is recipe is just my experiment. The idea came from my husband who loves methi and matter, but not very fond of rice; So he challenged me to make rice with methi and matter such that he could love and relish it. And guess what?- He did love it!... Its simple, quick and healthy.

Onion-1 sliced in rings
Tomato - 3 chopped finely
Boiled sweet corn- ¼ cup
Capsicum – ½ chopped in small cubes

Mustard Seeds / Rai- 1 tsp
Red Chilli Powder/Lal Mirch - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder / Dhaniya -1 tsp
Turmeric powder / Haldi-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil-2 tblspn
Lemon Juice-to taste

Soak kasuri methi leaves in water for 2 minutes. Drain it and squeeze well. Set this aside.
Heat oil and add in mustard and fennel seeds and allow it to crackle.
