Methi Tomato Rice

Greens are always my favorite in my diet, even my hubby love to have geens every day. My mother used to make mixed geen leaf curry (Kalakura) form spinach(Palakura), sukka kura, methi(menthem kura), bacchal kura and tota kura. I love this curry, it tastes wonderful and good for health, we can rarelay find such type of combos that are made tasty and healthy! Oops I think I deviated from the topic,. So, today I made this wonderful methi rice, I never know that methi rice tastes this good, because I always thought methi is sour in taste so the rice also will taste the same, but to my wonder the rice was that awesome that I and my hubby finsihed it in no time. Try it you will make it again and again like me!!!
