Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
Rice 1 cup

Palak(spinach) 2 cups chopped

Corn 1/2 cup

Green peas 1/2 cup

Onion 1/4 cup chopped

Cashews 2 teaspoons

Oil 2 teaspoons

Green chilies 1

Salt to taste

Cinnamon 1 inch stick


Cardamom 2

Bay leaf 1

Jeera 1/2 teaspoon

Preparation

  • Wash and soak the rice for half an hour. Cook the rice along with the whole garam masala(cloves, cardamom, bay leaf, cinnamon) and some salt.
  • Cool the rice and set aside. In a pan add the oil and heat it. Add the jeera and the cashews. When the cashews turn golden brown add the chopped onions.
  • When the onions turn golden brown add the cooked corn and green peas. When they are done add the finely chopped palak.
  • Fry till all the moisture evaporates and the palak is dry. Now add little bit of salt( rice is cooked along with salt) and chopped green chilies.
  • Sauté for a minute and add the cooked rice. Mix well and serve hot with any raita.
    TIPS You can also make this using the palak puree.
  • Make sure that the palak is well cooked and the moisture is fully evaporated before adding the rice.
  • Can use other veggies also. Fried onions enhances the taste of the dish. Try it. Rice when cooked with whole garam masala give an exotic flavor.
  • So cook the rice with whole garam masala instead of using garam masala powder.
