It is day 2 of the blogging marathon and color of the day is Green. If I say GREEN, what comes to your mind first?? Spinach right?? So made Spinach rice for lunch. Nothing fancy. A simple rice with spinach flavored with cumin and pepper.
What are the ingredients required?
Cooked Rice, 4 cups
Spinach, cleaned and chopped, 2 cups
Onion, 1 no
Mustard seeds, 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp
Chana dhall, 1 tbs
Peanuts, 1/4 cup
Red Chillies, 2- 3 nos
Ginger garlic paste, 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder, 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder, 1 tsp
Pepper powder, 1 tsp
Salt to taste
oil, 2 tsp
Grated coconut, 3- 4 Tbs(optional)
How it is made?
- Heat the oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and once they sputter add channa dhal, peanuts, onions and red chillies and saute till the onions turn translucent.
- Then add ginger garlic paste, cumin powder, pepper powder, turmeric powder and then add chopped spinach and cook till the spinach is done. Spinach has to be tender and all water from the spinach has to be evaporated. Add the grated coconut to this and mix well.
- Then add salt to taste and the cooked rice and mix well.
