Methi Rice

Any variety rice is hit at our home. Everyone loves it. For me it is easy and fast. There are few items I always end up buying during my every visit to Little India (a place where you get lot of if not all Indian stuff in Singapore). Methi Leaves has it's own unique flavour so either you like it or hate it.  Luckily in our home every one loves it. It is simple and yet flavourful rice. It is perfect for busy weekdays lunch.
