BM #68 Day 16 -
We start yet another week of this Cooking Carnival and I continue with the pattern of posting recipes with Bajra, Ragi, Jowar and Little Milliet. Here is what I posted so far in this series..
As the title suggests today check out the flavorful methi paneer pulao made with little millet.
We loved how the little millet grains were all separate and not mushy at all. My paneer loving kids also enjoyed this pulao.
Little Millet 1 cup
Onion, finely chopped 1/4 cup
Carrot and Peas 1/2 cup
Methi Leaves, finely chopped 1/4 cup
Paneer, Cubed 1/2 cup
Mint leaves finely chopped 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -
In a heated pressure cooker pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning.
After they give out nice aroma, add onions. Saute until they change color. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a few seconds.
Add in the tomato puree, carrots, peas, methi leaves, mint leaves, paneer cubes, green chili paste and dhania powder.
Mix well and add the little millet. Pour about 1 1/2 cups of water and stir in some garam masala.
Close the lid and let it cook for about 15 minutes or for one hiss of the pressure cooker.
Remove from heat. Upon cooling, remove from the pressure cooker and serve warm with raita of your choice.
