Methi Corn pulav

This is an easy Pulav that is tasty as well as easy. I got the recipe from The Budding Cook. I haven't made any changes to it except that I substituted the dried methi (fenugreek) leaves with fresh/frozen leaves. It is my  daughter's favorite as she loves corn. This is for all the corn and methi lovers out there.
2 Tbsp ghee
1 bay leaf
1 stick of cinnamon
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ - ¾ tsp of a mixture of powdered cloves, pepper and cardamom
2-3 green chillies
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
2-3 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
1 medium onion, thinly slice 
1cup fresh or frozen methi
¾ cup frozen corn
Approximately 2 ½ cups cooked basmati rice
Salt to taste

Heat ghee in a large pan. Add the bay leaf, cinnamon stick, cumin seeds and the spice mix followed by the chopped onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies. Sauté till the onions are translucent. Fish out the bay leaf and cinnamon stick.
Add the kasuri methi/dried fenugreek leaves and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the frozen corn to this and mix well. Cook until the corn has thawed in the pan and the water content (from the frozen corn) has evaporated.

Add the cooked rice and mix well. Serve hot with raita.
