Spinach Rice

Spinach rice

Spinach – 1 big bunch
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Green chilli - 5 -6 ground coarsely
Onion – 1 Medium size
Cashew nuts – Hand full
Rice – 2 cups

Boil rice and keep aside by separating the grains

Wash and chop spinach and steam it. How I do is, cook the spinach in a pan by sprinkling about 30 ml of water, cover the pan with lid and cook for just 4 – 5 minutes or until the volume just reduces.Allow it to cool and pulse it for few seconds. Do not make into smooth paste.In the meantime, chop the onion into thin strips.

Heat a deep pan with 2 tbsp of oil. When it is hot, add cashews and then onion. Fry until the onion becomes transparent.

Add ginger garlic paste, Green chilli paste and fry until the raw smell goes.Add salt, garam masala and the spinach paste and stir for another minute.

Now add the boiled rice and gently mix every thing.

Serve warm with raita.
