Spinach / Palak Rice
Blogging Marathon - Day 2
I had a big pack of spinach which needed to be used soon and I was not going to use the whole packet in making spinach palav or any gravy with it. Instead decided to use some of them in my rice and made them just like preparing Methi Rice which you can see here.
Tasted too good and everyone at home enjoyed.
Rice - 1 cup( have used Basmati Rice)
Onion - 1 sliced
Tomato - 2 chopped
Ginger and garlic paste - 3/4 tbsp
Chilli Powder- 1 1/2 tsp( or use half of chilli and half of garam masala)
Spinach leaves - 1 big bunch
Salt as needed
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Lime Juice - 3 - 4 drops
Oil - 1 tbsp
Wash and soak rice for 20 - 30 minutes and cook separately with 2 cups of water and with some salt. Once done remove and cool and fluff it up with a fork.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, wait for few seconds and add sliced onions. Fry till nice brown and add ginger and garlic paste. Saute for a minute and then add chopped tomatoes. Mash and cook till pulpy and water leaves and oil floats.
Next add chopped spinach leaves( I chopped them as thin as possibble and then a cut here and there). Fry till leaves shrink and are cooked. Also add salt . Finally
and the powders and mix well in oil. Gently add the cooked rice and mix well. Add in lime juice and mix gently so all the masala is mixed up well.
