Once onions softens a bit, or turns translucent, add capsicum and potatoes to it.

Later add, green onions, fenugreek leaves and give a toss.

After cooking for hardly 1 minute, drain water from the rice and add to it. Mix them well so that rice takes oil and roast up uniformly.

Add water, sprinkle salt and covering with lid, let it simmer till rice cooks. Be careful to not overcook it otherwise, rice will turn sticky.
