Corn Methi Pulav - Simple one pot meal

I do one pot meal for most of Sunday lunch. It is quick and I use the fresh vegetables that I had bought  the day before,  my family's favourite. I have done this with fresh fenugreek leaves and frozen corn. It tasted awesome. Nice combo of flavours. You can serve any spicy vegetarian gravy or poriyal with this rice. 


Basmati rice - 1 cup (200 grams)
Water - 1 and 1/2 cups
Methi leaves / fenugreek leaves - 1 cup
Sweet corn - 1 cup (if you are using fresh corn cook it and take the kernels out of it)
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
