Methi Muttar Pulao

As I had decided to make Mango sasime today, instead of serving it with plain rice I thought I will make Methi Muttar Pulao.

You Need:
Methi leaves - 2 cup finely chopped
Peas - 1/2 cup
Potato - 1/2 cup cut into 1cm cubes
Onion - 1/2 cup finely sliced
Cardamom - 2
Cloves - 4
Pepper corn - 4
Cinnamon - 1" piece
Green Chillies - 4 to 5 (as per taste)
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Rice - 1 cup
Salt




Method:
Soak Rice for 10 mins
Soak the methi leaves in water with 1 tbsp salt for 10 mins
In the pressure cooker, add ghee
Add onions and saute till onions become pink
Add cardamom, pepper corn, cloves, cinnamon and green chillies, saute for a min
Add the methi leaves, fry for 2 mins
Add the peas, potato, salt and rice
Fry for another 2 mins
Add 2.5 cups of water  and cook for 3 whistles
Once the pressure is off transfer to the serving bowl spread the rice and allow it to cool.
