Methi Chana Pulav ( Potluck Remake )

I was actually supposed to post this dish last week but due to some personal reasons could not post it on time.

This was the dish made by Shobha for the potluck-party and I was paired with her for this month so I had to remake this entry.

So here I am with this yummy treat , the pulav was really very simple and delicious and we all loved it very much.









Ingredients :

1 cup...............basmati
1/4cup............chana dal
1/4 cup...........methi leaves ( chopped)
2..................green chillies (slit)
1tsp............garlic ( crushed)
1tsp...........ginger ( grated)
1 piece..........dalchini
3/4 .............cloves
2/3 ...........cardamoms
2/3............bay leaves
1 tsp..........shahjeera
1/4 tsp.........turmeric powder
1/2 tsp..........coriander powder
salt
oil

Method :

Soak chana daal overnight.
Wash the rice thoroughly and soak it for 10 minutes.
In a pan heat oil and add cardamom, cloves, dalchini and bay leaves.
Now add ginger, garlic, chillies and chopped methi leaves and saute.
Drain water from rice and add it to the pan, saute for 5 minutes.
Now add chana daal and again saute for 5 to 10 mintues.
Now add salt , haldi, dhana powder and 3 cups water and mix everything well.
Cover the pan with lid and cook.
When almost done add shahjeera and further cook till all the water is absorbed.
