Methi Rice

First time I ate this when I was in Sydney. We were invited to Ganesh Chaturthi by one of our friend. All of us took some or the other dish. One lady, I forgot her name, had brought this. I asked her the recipe, as I always do. But had forgotten the masala she had put. So I used to make it with any masala I had at home. Recently I saw this recipe again on TV. Now I know about the masala also!!!.

1. Rice 1 cup
2. Methi leaves 1 cup
3. Potato 1
4. Lemon juice 1 tbl spn
5. Ghee 1 tea spn
6. Cumin seeds ½ tea spn
7. Coriander seeds 1 tea spn
8. Toor daal 1 tea spn
9. Cloves (Lavang) 4-5
10. Red chillies 2-3
11. Salt
