India is known for its medicinal plants and herbs. Most often, these crops are also consumed as a staple food as well. The same can be said for fenugreek or what is more commonly referred to as Methi in the Indian subcontinent.

As an organic food source, fenugreek is rich in antioxidants and is an excellent source of nutrition as well. Culinarily speaking, Indians are in the habit of consuming its leaves, seeds as well as the powdered form of the seeds in various dishes.

Its external application is also something that is done regularly in the Indian subcontinent.

Not only is fenugreek used as a flavouring agent and a culinary spice, but it is also known for its various medicinal properties since time immemorial. Its uses extend to being utilized as a food supplement, in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and cosmetics.

As such, this article will venture to discuss the ingredients and steps involved in preparing wholesome, gobsmacking methi rice.

The ideal kind of methi rice recipe involves minimal time spent on preparing the dish, a simple set of instructions and steps to follow and most importantly it must be easy enough to make.

Oil – 1 tbsp
Garlic cloves – 2 (finely chopped)
Cumin seeds – ½ a teaspoon
Green chillies – 2 (slit)
Frozen/pre-boiled green peas – ½  cup

Methi rice recipe – The steps involved

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 2

This version of the methi rice recipe must be made over a stovetop.

  • Step 1: Give the rice a quick rinse and leave it to soak for about 20 minutes. Pour two cups of water into a deep dish/vessel and bring it to a boil. You can then add the rice and cover the vessel with a lid. Make sure you don’t cook the rice completely so that it turns soft and mushy. Cook it only to a grainy consistency.
  • Step 2: In a heated saucepan, pour in the oil and add the cumin seeds, the green chillies and the garlic cloves.
  • Step 3: Make sure you saute it all until you feel the rawness leave the mixture. You can then add the green peas and the methi leaves. Stir and saute the resulting blend for about 4 minutes or so. Ensure that the fenugreek leaves are sufficiently cooked.
  • Step 4: Now you can add the garam masala powder, the turmeric powder and stir it all well. Turn the flames off.
  • Step 5: Take the rice that should have cooled off by now and add it to the mixture. Add a sprinkle of salt (according to your taste), the lemon juice and stir it all together. Serve with raita or vegetable salad.
