Enjoy this fragrant rice with green peas, tofu, fenugreek, & crispy onions. Mouthwatering & healthy w/powerful anti-cancer ingredients.
If you wanted to get on fenugreek bandwagon, then this recipe is perfect for YOU! Yes! It is easy, simple and quick - making it perfect for a weekday or well, just about any time when you are in the lazy mood but want to eat something very healthy and tasty.
I have talked a LOT about the amazing health benefits of fenugreek in THIS ARTICLE.
You can check it out later but just know that if there is one spice you must add to your health regimen, then it is fenugreek. Far superior (and I REALLY mean...FAR...as in, F-A-R) than turmeric, this one spice alone can help balance your hormones, prevent cancer, balance your blood sugar, thicken your hair and beautify your skin, plus much more! Like I said, do take the time to read the article later - for any ques. or comments related to the article, please post there only - NOT on this recipe page.

For those with SUGAR issues:-
If you have sugar issues, you can still enjoy this recipe with 2 very simple, easy options!
1. REDUCE the quantity of rice and add some quinoa. So, you can do, say, 30% rice to 70% quinoa.
2. OR, you can eliminate rice completely - make the recipe as is, and mix in quinoa instead of rice.
3. And remember, to add some Ceylon cinnamon as well as bay leaves powder, to your food when cooking AND when ready to eat. The fenugreek in this recipe is a great blood sugar balancing spice!
