Methi (fenugreek) leaves  – 1 bunch
Tomatoes – 1

Clean the rice and soak for at least 10-15 minutes. Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is hot add cumin seeds. When the color changes add methi (fenugreek) leaves  and fry until it shrinks (this will help to get rid of the bitter taste). Now add the vegetables and stir well. Then add the tomatoes, red chili powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, and turmeric powder and mix well. When the raw smell disappears add the  soaked basmati rice without water and fry until the rice sticks to the bottom. Now add 4 cups of water and salt and close the lid and allow it to cook for 20 minutes. Serve hot with raitha.
