This is the first time I have ever tried using methi leaves/ fenugreek leaves in a rice dish. I love the aroma and flavour it lends. Its also my first time using cucumber in a rice dish! NO! Im not a weirdo! It tastes really good. Love it crunchiness :) Broccoli and cucumber??unusual combo?....I think not!

                    Tastes awesome with pappadums and channa masala. An easy lunchbox complaints!.......and a happy tummy!

2 cups cooked rice (approx)
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
2 chicken sausages, chopped (optional)
1 large onion, diced finely
2 tsps garlic, diced finely
1 big red chili, chopped
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 - 1 tsp pepper powder
1 tbsp dark soya sauce
1- 2 tbsps methi leaves/ fenugreek leaves
2 tbsps chopped coriander leaves
3 tbsps oil

  • In a wok, heat oil and add the cumin seeds.
  • Add and saute the garlic.
  • Add the onions and saute till transparent and slightly browned.
  • Add the chopped red chilli.
  • Add the sausages and stir
  • Add the broccoli and saute for a few minutes. 
  • Add some salt, cumin powder and pepper powder. Saute for a few minutes.
  • Add the methi leaves and cucumber and stir.
  • Add the cooked rice little by little and mix well on low flame.
  • Add the soya sauce and coriander leaves and mix well.

  • Dont mix too much of rice. stop adding rice when you think the masala wont be enough to mix anymore. I like my rice with more masala and less rice.
