I prepared spinach rice with mushroom and green peas. It is a very healthy version to have as mushroom also have lot of nutrients. I am sure you would enjoy preparing it.

  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 2 tbsp butter/olive oil for vegans
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushroom
  • 1/4 cup green peas(frozen or fresh)
  • 1 bunch chopped spinach
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 cloves
  • 1/2" cinamon stick
  • 6 whole black peppers
  • 1 bayleaf
  • a pinch of sugar
  • salt to taste

Cooking Procedure:
Soak rice in a 3 1/2 cup of water for 20 min and then cook the rice .

Heat butter in a pan ,add bay leaf fry for 30 seconds then add black pepper,cinamon stick,clove ,cumin seeds and fry till cumin seeds crackle.

Once spinach cooked make the flame high let excess water evaporate till it become nice paste.

You mention green chilies in the instructions but your ingredients list does not list them! How many are required and how do you prepare them? My rice came out tasty but not green at all.

Satya said...

thank you for trying out the recipe. It seems I forgot to add the green chilli in ingredients you will need to add 3 to 4 Green chillies also while cooking the spinach do not cover it as it will loose its green color hope it will come out well next time :-)
