  • 1 bunch - Spinach
  • 1 bunch - Coriander leaves
  • Green chillies (varies upon the taste and spice that one desires)
  • 1 - Onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 - Carrot (Grated)
  • 1 cup - Peas (Either fresh peas soaked/boiled or frozen peas will do)
  • 3 cups - Basmati Rice
  • Salt (Varies upon the quantity and taste)
  • How to Make Easy Spinach rice:

    1. Cook the basmati rice and cool it (put a tbsp of oil while rice is cooking to avoid the rice from sticking to each other and also to avoid sticking to the bottom of the rice cooker).
    2. While you are cooling the rice, add a tsp of ghee to it.
    3. Cook the spinach with very little water.
    4. Grind the coriander leaves and green chillies (adding very little water).
    5. Heat oil in a pan and fry the chopped onions till they turn brown.
    6. Pour the coriander/green chillies paste along with green peas into the pan. Boil it until the raw smell of the green chillies and coriander leaves disappear.
    7. Grind the cooked spinach into a fine paste and add it to the boiling coriander/green chilli paste along with the desired amount of salt.
    8. Add the grated carrot and let it boil for few minutes.
    9. Turn off the stove and mix it with the cooled rice.
    10. The remaining paste can be stored in the fridge and can be used later. This rice goes well with onion raitha.
