Hi..First of all Thank you so much each and every one who wished my best friend sandhya on her birthday special post,even you don`t know her..That shows the affection of you all on me/  Mahaslovelyhome.I will convey the wishes of you all to my friend surely..And Excuse me please for not visiting your beautiful blogs,actually from last 3-4 days Iam not feeling good with stomach pain..
Doctor suggested scanning(s) to me for seviour back pain which Iam facing nowadays.So,I took tablets on friday night without dinner and in the morning at 5.30 am felt some pain and it was really fearful n up to 1 hour I screamed like ghost and in the morning at 10.30 am went for examinations.I was with empty stomach for almost 15 hours and even after taking meals also still felt pain on saturday and sunday(little bit)..My god..It was really horrible and more than the tension  my husband annoyed me much for not eating any thing..the truth is he respect food and never shows his anger on food and never rejects food even it is not too tasty..Of course!! I respect food but don`t know why I did n`t took meals on that day night and DH ordered to stop DIET..And  strictly told me to post pone it for next Year..Iam confused and happy to see his love on me..By the way Feeling better now.Hope I will be very fine soon..:)

Coming to the recipe,In varanda  I have little bit place to grow plants like roses or any other flowers..So,I cleaned it up and thrown some fenugreek seeds and after few days got small methi leaves...In the same week pressure cooked some chick peas..To use methi leaves first I planned to mix up with rice..After seeing chick peas changed the Idea and by mixing those two I prepared some rice...So,finally The recipe  came out like this..A must try version if you love chick peas and methi leaves..and the combination works out very well...You can try this with left over rice too.Now to the recipe......
