Hi all. This dish is our favourite but we just happen to post it. This is a very healthy as well tasty recipe, nevertheless very easy to make. If you have kids or adults around the house who dont like methi leaves for it's bitterness, this is the best way to make them eat it without cribbing.


For seasoning:

Channa dal - 1 tbsp
coriander seeds - 1 tsp
red chillies - 4-5

Dry roast them and grind them into a powder.

onion - med size -1
methi leaves - 1 cup
salt to taste
tamarind - small ball/1/2 tsp paste
Basmati rice - 1 1/2 cup


Season using the above mentioned ingredients and add the onions chopped and saute them. Then add the methi leaves and add a little water and cook it. once the water evaporates, add the tamarind and cook. Then add salt and the ground masala. Then cook till done. Cook the basmati rice separately and keep aside. Add the Add the masala to the rice and mix well.
