48 SPROUTED METHI SEEDS RICE

Sprouted Methi(Fenugreek) seeds Rice/Palav/Pulao

Rice - 1 cup
Methi sprouts - 1 cup
Onion - 1 chopped fine
Green chillies - 2 slit long
Garlic - 4 flakes chopped fine or grated
Ginger - a small piece chopped fine or grated
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves - few chopped
Cinnamon - 1 piece
Cardamom - 1
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 - 1 1/2 tbsp

Wash and soak methi seeds overnight, then drain water or also can drink it or use in any curries. Cover the seeds with a wet cloth and allow it to sprout out. Usually will take 1 - 2 days. Sprinkle the cloth now and then during the period. Usually I prepare in large qty and freeze the remaining. Not only this but other lentils too. So can use them whenever I need.

Wash and cook rice seperately. Once done remove and cool.


Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, cinnamon and cardamom. Wait for few seconds and add chopped onions. Saute for a minute and add green chillies, ginger and garlic. Fry till onions are nice brown. Next add sprouted methi seeds. Reduce flame and keep frying for 4 - 5 minutes or until done, then add chilli powder and turmeric powder. Mix well and add the cooked rice. Also add chopped coriander leaves and salt. Fry to mix well. Just before removing add lime juice and mix and serve.

Also sending my Methi sprouts Podi/Powder for the same event.

Sending this to CWS - Fenugreek seeds hosted by SE of Denufood event started by Priya.

PriyaVaasu said...

hi padma,
Methi Rice looks yummy!!! Sprouts looks so inviting. I would love to try it. Small doubt padma, Methi seeds/Venthayam normally has some bitter taste right, will the rice have that bitter taste???

Padma said...

Thanks everyone :)

Padma said...

Thanks Priya - regarding the bitterness no it was not that bitter at all as it would be with fresh seeds. Once it sprouts out it will really reduce its bitterness and with all the masala and rice mixed up and mainly with lime juice was not at all that bitter. It was really good to eat :)

Sashi said...

Gexton said...
