Whenever we bring Fenugreek (Methi) leaves to home, I am sure to prepare this rice variety! My hubby also loves to have this dish anytime :) Last time when we had been to groceries, I had got few bunches of fresh methi leaves. I prefer using the leafy veggies first and never refrigerate them for long time. One bunch, I used for preparing parathas this time. Then, I prepared Fenugreek leaves rice next day for hubby's lunch box. 
Here is the recipe for simple and delicious Fenugreek Leaves Rice. Hope you like it!

Preparation time: 25 - 30 minutes
Servings: 1 

Rice - 1 cup
Fenugreek leaves - 1 bunch
For seasoning: oil - 2 spoon, ghee - 3 spoon, urad dal - 1/2 spoon, mustard seeds - 1/2 spoon, chopped green chillies - 2
1 lime
Sugar - 1/2 spoon or to taste
Salt to taste
Grated coconut - 3 spoon

Cook the rice with 2 cups of water. Don't make it mushy mushy. 
Spread the cooked rice on a plate and allow to cool.
Wash the fenugreek leaves and chop them finely.
Heat oil and ghee in a heavy bottom pan. Add urad dal, mustard seeds. Once you hear the spluttering sound, add the chopped green chillies and saute for a while.
Add the chopped fenugreek leaves and roast them on low flame for 7- 8 minutes.
Then add the rice and grated coconut. Mix it nicely till rice and coconut are heated up and switch off the flame.
Add salt, sugar and lime juice for taste. Mix it well and check the taste.
Tasty rice is ready to serve now! You can have them as it is or with curd and pickle.
