How to make Carrot Methi Rice

  1. Soak rice in water for about 1/2 an hour. Drain the water and keep it aside.
  2. Clean the Methi leaves thoroughly by placing them in hot water. Add salt to this water to make sure the leaves are dirt and germs free. Drain the water and save the methi leaves in a separate bowl.
  3. Heat a thick bottomed pan and add some oil and ghee. Add cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaf, cloves. Saute well. Add more oil and now add the ginger garlic paste. Saute well till the raw smell goes away.
  4. Add the sliced onions and fry till they become transparent. Add the tomato slices and red chillies. Add garam masala powder and required salt. Saute well by adding oil or ghee whenever necessary.
  5. Add the methi leaves and saute for two minutes. Now add the grated carrot and fry well. Make sure all the ingredients are mixed well.
  6. Add this to the pressure cooker along with rice and cook for about three whistles. Add little more salt if required.
  7. In the meantime, roast some cashews in ghee. Once the rice is done, mix well and add the roasted cashews. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve it hot.

My Tip:

When you cook the rice, replace one cup of water with one cup of coconut milk to get a heavenly taste.
