Methi Muttar Pulav

Methi Muttar Pulav - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
When I am not in a mood to dish out something elaborate and yet want my taste buds to be satiated, then the one pot meal recipes come to my rescue. Pulaos are my all time favourites, they just need a raita paired with the hot flavoured rice and you are done with your food. No frills attached!! Green peas happen to be one of my favourite veggies, I can eat them with anything - salads, chats, fried cutlets, pizzas, gravies and what not. They are so versatile that they can be paired with almost all Indian recipes. Methi or fenugreek leaves add in their own charismatic flavor, all you need is a handful of this herb and you are good to go.
