In brief: Time

First must heal the muscle, then stretch the muscles in the area, then finally can strengthen muscles.
Squats are good for strengthening.

In brief: Core exercises

Stretching exercises for a pulled groin in the early stage of injury are helpful to prevent secondary tightness.
Eventual exercises should focus on lower abdominal strengthening since a significant amount of groin injuries are related to an imbalance between the groin muscles and lower abdominal muscles. A physical therapist could teach you the specific program.
