This looks so very good. I keep finding recipes with methi leaves but of course I can't buy them here. Such a pity.

Nice one,, you cleverly used vang baath masala powder. great one

I made the same too two days back..used peas, forgot to add groundnuts and instead of cutting finely, i grinded the methi leaves. Also i added a bit jaggery to it...Maybe grinding the methi made the rice look green...ur baath colour is super
