I was getting bored with the usual way of preparing spinach with dal. Recently met my aunt , she had prepared this spinach rice. It tasted different and nice, So now its my version of spinach rice given below. Its quite simple, fast and easy to prepare,as well healthy 🙂
Spinach : generous bunch(finely chopped)
uncooked Basmathi rice: 2 cups
pepper : 2 table spoons
cumin seeds : 1 table spoon
onion: 1/4 of the large one chopped
ginger : small piece
garlic : 2 pods sliced( not chopped)
oil : 2 table spoons
Salt to taste
Wash and cook the basmathi rice with 1:2 of rice and water ration respectively. Once cooked, use fork and separate the rice. Do not mash.
Heat oil in a bigger pan. Add cumin seeds, let it splutter. Now add onion, let it heat to become transparent. add the peanuts, garlic, ginger, pepper. Let it get heated for 2 mins, now add the chopped spinach. I used baby spinach. Let the spinach cook for 5 to 6 mins, it leaves out water, go on cooking. Add little bit of salt now and let the spinach get cooked well. Now add the rice and mix well. stir well and let the rice cook for few mins with the spinach, add a pinch of salt, as the rice should absorb some salt. Mix well.
Now our spinach rice is ready to be served 🙂
