Spinach Pulav

Spinach Pulav
Hai Guys...Hope everyone is doing great..Yesterday I tried out Homemde Bounty Chocolate and it was a huge blast..It tasted more or less like real bounty chocolate..I will post up the recipe soon..In todays dish I am gonna be using the most underestimated veggie “SPINACH”..I am gonna take the everyday humble spinach and turn it into exotic dish..This dish is one of the example for that..The magic for this dish lies in the lovely green masala that we prepare..This is really a simple yet tasty pulav..It is great for kids since it is made with spinach.

Basmati rice-1 cup
Onion-1 sliced
Spinach-2 cup sliced thinly
Salt to taste
Oil-2 tblspn

For Green Masala:

Coriander leaves / Malli-1 cup
Green chilli-3
Saunf / Sombu-1 tblspn
Cinnamon / Pattai-1 inch piece
Ginger-1 tblspn
Garlic-6 cloves
Cumin seeds / Jeera-1 tsp


Soak rice in water for 30 min.Drain it and set aside.

Take the ingrediants given for the masala and make into a fine paste by adding some water.

Take a sauce pan or any casserole pan and add oil in it.

Throw in the onions and cook till it turns golden.Add in the green masala paste and cook till oil separates from it.

Add in the spinach and mix well.When the spinach has wilted add in the rice and mix well.

Season with salt and pour in 2 cups of water.Bring this to boil.When it come up to a boil,lower the flame and cook for 15-20 min or until the rice has absorbed all water.

Fluff it up with a fork.
