Methi Pulao | How to make Quick Fenugreek leaves pulav

Greens are very essential in our diet. Having green leafy vegetables at least thrice a week is good for our health. Methi pulao is made easy and quick and its a one pot dish. Methi is tossed with Indian spice mix and cooked along with rice. The taste of this pulao will be aromatic once done. Many of us don't use methi frequently because of its strong flavor and I swear if you try this dish you will really love it.
