How to make the Methi Rice Mixed rice
Wash and soak rice, cook in your regular method. Keep it aside.
Wash and drain the methi leaves.
In a mixer take all the ingredients for the ground masala along with the methi leaves. Grind to a smooth paste using little water.
Heat a non stick pan with oil and ghee. Temper with tempering ingredients. Saute for couple of minutes.
Now add the ground masala and saute well till the raw smell leaves. This may take about 5 - 7 mins.
When the oil starts coming out from the masala, add the cooked rice and mix well. Finally mix in the lemon juice and remove.
Saute the ground masala till the raw smells leaves.
Make sure you don't add lemon juice still on stove.
Since this has masala in the rice itself you don't really have to serve anything special for this.
