Methi Rice or Fenugreek Leaf Rice With Fresh Peas

A Naturally Flavored Fenugreek Leaf Rice With Fresh Peas

I always like to use fresh fenugreek leaves with fresh peas. They pair well with rice dishes. This fenugreek (methi) leaf rice is naturally flavored with fenugreek leaves, garlic, black pepper corns, and cumin seeds.

Fenugreek is a good source of fiber. It also contains folic acid, vitamins, calcium, protein, and minerals. It is low-calorie and low-fat. This veggie has a special aroma that is truly appetizing.

Fresh peas are also good source of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. These green, pearly looking legumes are soft when cooked. They enhance the taste and look of the dish.

Let me now share with you fenugreek leaf rice with green peas (methi rice) recipe.
