Step By Step Recipe For Methi Pulao | Menthya Soppina Chitranna |Menthya Soppina Pulao

Methi Pulao
Preparation of Methi Pulao or Methi Bhaat in Karnataka style which we make at home involves two stages. In the first stage, the Masala powder or Bath powder needs to be prepared.

This can be freshly prepared when you are cooking the Methi Pulao or you can make the Masala powder and store for a few days.

However, it may be noted that the freshness of the aroma will tend to evaporate with time. It is better to use the powder within a week of preparation.

Stage I – Homemade Bath Powder Recipe | Easy Recipe Ideas

Ingredients Required

  1. Chana Dal (Split Chickpeas)      2 Tbsps.
  2. Urad Dal (Split Black Gram)      2 Tbsps.
  3. Dhaniya Seeds (Coriander)        3 Tbsps.
  4. Dalchini (Cinnamon)                   1 stick
  5. Red Chillies                                    6
  6. Lavang (Cloves)                             5
  7. Dry coconut                                    1 small piece or 2 Tbsp. of Dry Coconut Powder

Preparation Method

Take all the above ingredient and roast in a pan on medium heat. Roast for 3-4 minutes till the spices release their aroma. Cool for a few minutes and then grind to a fine powder in the mixer.

Your Methi Pulao powder is ready. It may be noted that this homemade bath powder can be used for preparing different variants of rice preparations including Vangibath which is made with brinjals, or Capsicum Bath which is made with Capsicum, etc..

Stage II – Methi rice recipe | Menthya Soppu Vangibath

Ingredients Required

  1. Steamed Rice    2 Cups
  2. Water                  As Appropriate
  3. Cooking Oil        1 Tbsp.

Preparation Method

This is probably one of the easiest recipes to cook. Plain white rice! But if the rice is not cooked properly, either overdone or underdone, it can make or mar the final dish which is the Methi Pulao which may turn out to Methi Paste inside!

So ensure that when you cook the rice in the cooker, you add a little less water than you normally would. Also, add 1 Tbsp. cooking oil to it. This will ensure that the rice is cooked just right and not too soft. Cook the rice for the Methi Pulao and keep aside.
