Methi Daliya Pulao

Day 5 of the Daliya challenge !! So, finally we have reached the last day and I am feeling quite exhilarated. I can see a visible difference and I am keen to take up this challenge next week too ( coz it is tough to keep temptation at bay during the weekends ).

Read on for the recipe -

Preparation Time - 15 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1/3 cup daliya
  • 1/2 cup methi leaves (tightly packed)
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small potato
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • a pinch of fennel seeds
  • a pinch of coriander powder
  • 1-2 tbsp tomato puree (optional)
  • a pinch of garam masala
  • 1-2 green chili
  • 1 tsp oil
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Wash and drain the fenugreek leaves to remove excess water. Roughly chop it up. 

Wash and peel the potato. Chop into small bits.

Dry roast the daliya to a light brown and till it gives off a fragrance.

Cooking -  Heat the oil in a pressure cooker. Add the green chili along with cumin and fennel seeds.

Once they stop spluttering, add the onion. Fry till translucent.

Add the fenugreek leaves and potato pieces and fry for 2 mins. Add the coriander powder and garam masala. Fry for 1 min.
