Egg Methi Rice is a delicious and easy recipe to make a recipe with rice and egg. It is one of the best options to try when you are bored with plain fried rice and want to have healthy and tasty things.
It is a little twisted version of the regular egg rice recipe. Egg Methi Rice is a healthy and complete meal in itself. And you can even make this with leftover rice.
The fenugreek in it is giving the dish more flavour and makes this more interesting than the regular egg fried rice or egg pulao.
This dish is so tasty that you do not need to have any side dish with it. Moreover, it will be an excellent addition to fulfilling your daily energy needs. Besides, this is a perfect option for tiffin as well.
Ways To Make Egg Methi Rice
This recipe is quite flexible when it comes to the making process. People have different ways to make this.
This can be made in a pan, instant pot, or even a pressure cooker. You can make this recipe on Tawa as well. Moreover, you can experiment with the ingredients too.
Some people like to saute cumin seeds in oil before adding the leaves, cooking them for a few minutes. They then add the eggs, scrambling them in the pan and then adding the rice and spices.
While others like to first cook the eggs separately from fenugreek leaves. Then they assemble eggs, fenugreek leaves, rice, and spices together and cook for a few minutes.
It is to be noted that in both the above methods the rice is precooked or boiled. And both these methods are using a pan or a tawa.
However, if you are to make this in a pressure cooker then the method will be different. First, you need to cook the fenugreek leaves and then the chopped onions. Add turmeric powder at this stage.
You need to add the uncooked rice in this method. Also, add spices and water to the cooker. Boiled eggs will be added to this recipe in this method. Sometimes chopped tomato is also added to this. However, most of the times the rice is really soft. You can adjust the water content to avoid this from happening. Moreover, less water is needed in pressure cooker to cook this recipe.
TR’s Extra Shots:
- You can add peas to the rice also. Also, you can add more vegetables like corn, potato, carrot, or capsicum to make it more nutritious and have a colourful look.
- Add Bombay pulao masala, and you will have your own Bombay-style egg rice. Likewise, you can add spices to your liking if you want to experiment.
- It will be best if you use the fresh leaves of fenugreek in this recipe. However, if you do not have that available, substitute them with dry fenugreek leaves (Kasuri Methi).
