Rice is usually a no-no for diabetics because it causes a quick rise in blood sugar levels. To counter the effect of rice, toss in some fibre-rich vegetables and other diabetic-friendly ingredients like garlic and fenugreek to create a hearty pulao.

Preparation Time : 20 mins.
Cooking Time : 30 mins.

Serves 4.

1 cup fat grained rice
1 green chilli, deseeded and sliced
25 mm (1″) piece ginger, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 cup finely chopped onions
½ cup finely chopped tomatoes
2 cups finely chopped fenugreek (methi) leaves
2 small brinjals, cut into big pieces
½ cup fresh double beans (pavta), boiled or soaked and cooked dried double beans
4 mushrooms, cut into thick slices
1 teaspoon chilli powder
2 teaspoons oil
Salt to taste
For the garnish
2 tablespoons chopped coriander
1. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker, add the green chilli slices, ginger, garlic and onions and sauté till the onions turn translucent.
2. Add the tomatoes, fenugreek leaves, brinjals, cooked double beans, mushrooms and chilli powder, mix well and cook for a few minutes.
3. Add the rice and 2½ cups of hot water and salt and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
4. Serve hot garnished with coriander.
