Methi Soya Pulav

When the  SYS  ingredients for May were declared as Fenugreek or Bottle Gourd I bought a fresh bunch of methi leaves and finally decided to make a flavorful rice dish with it adding some soya chunks to it.

 The pulav was very tasty and we had it with aloo sabji . But it can simply be had with raita and achaar too .

This pulav is full of calcium and protien and is good for growing children as well as pregnant women. It is one of the easiest pulav as it has minimum of ingredients.

 As it already has methi and soya usually no other sabji or daal is required with it.

Sending this to Viji for the SYS event-May







Ingredients : 

1 cup..................soya chunks
1 bunch................fresh methi (fenugreek)
2 cups..................basmati rice
1 ........................onion ( chopped)
1 tbsp..................chilly ginger garlic paste
1 tsp....................garam masala ( powder of cloves, cardamom , cinnamon)
4 Tbsp ................oil
salt







Method : 

Boil water and add the soya chunks in it and cook for 10 minutes.
Keep them in the hot water for 15 minutes and then squeeze out the water.
Clean and pick the methi leaves and cut them.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non stick pan and saute the onions for 5 minutes.
Add the paste of chilly ginger garlic and saute for 5 more minutes.
Now add 1 more tbsp oil and  the methi leaves and saute till all the water evaporates.
Add the squeezed soya chunks and saute for 5 minutes.
Finally add 2 tbsp oil and washed and drained basmati rice and saute well for 5 more minutes.
Add 4 cups water, salt according to the taste and cook till done. ( for 15 to 20 minutes ) on slow flame.
