The Recipe of Fresh Fenugreek Greens Pulao:
Quantity of fresh fenugreek leaves: 2 generous handfuls of fenugreek leaves
Quantity of rice: 2 medium bowls full of rice = approx. 250gm of rice (I preferred kolam rice for this recipe)
I cooked this pulao in a thick ceramic coated cookware
In adequate blend of warm vegetable oil and ghee (clarified butter), add finely sliced pieces of fenugreek leaves, finely sliced pieces of 3-4 green chilli peppers – for mild-pungent flavour (the green chilli peppers I used for this recipe have pleasant mild-pungent flavour), smidgen the mixture with salt; when the fenugreek leaf mixture condenses to certain extent, add rice, add the rice mixture with 3 medium bowls full of water; when the rice is par-cooked, add small paneer/cottage cheese cubes (100gm); cook the rice in low heat until the water evaporates
Serving size: approx. 4
The rice has the fresh flavour of fenugreek leaves, paneer adds the required factor of deliciousness, the mild-pungent flavour is because of green chilli pepper.
A rich probiotic, protein meal along with drink of buttermilk.
