How to Make Cliantro Rice

  • Wash and chop cilantro. Along with the grated coconut, grind cilantro into a smooth paste adding water.
  • Take the pulp and strain the juice out of it. Keep doing this till you have taken all the juice from the paste. You should extract about 4 cups of juice.
  • Grind ginger and garlic into a paste.
  • Soak basmati rice in water for about 20 mins.
  • In a saucepan add oil and add cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaves, onion and ginger-garlic paste and fry till the raw smell is gone.
  • Add basmati rice and fry a few seconds.
  • In a pressure pan/cooker, pour in all the fried ingredients along with the cilantro/coconut juice.
  • Add ghee, salt and garam masala.
  • Cover and cook for 3 whistles (or like you would cook your rice regularly).
  • Simmer for 5 minutes. Serve hot with raitha.
