Methi Pulavo

Today we had Methi Pulavo for lunch,tried this for the 1st time and its a big hit,my Hubby liked it very much.I thought of making this pulvao by jst adding chopped methi leaves to the veggies,fry them and cook with rice,but when I opend the fridge I found fresh coconut lying in there for last 3 days then I changed my mind to cook it with coconut milk instead.Then to enhance the taste I added coriander leaves to methi leaves n spices,made a smooth paste and cooked this way......
