Delicious and packed with loads of spinach - this rice promises to be loved by picky eaters!
  • 3 cups tightly packed spinach leaves
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ½ med size red onion, chopped
  • 7 green Indian Chillies or any other you prefer (You can cut down the spiciness by reducing the amount)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cups rice (I used a blend of white rice and wild rice but you can totally use just plain white rice or any other)
  • 3 cups water
  • Salt as per taste
  1. In a blender jar add garlic,onion and green chillies. Blend.
  2. In a pot, add oil. Once hot, add that onion mix and cook on med heat until fragrant. Meanwhile wash the rice by placing it in a strainer until you start seeing clear water. Keep it aside. Once the onion mix is cooked, add rice to it without any water. Stir it around for a minute or two. Puree the spinach and cilantro with a cup of water until a smooth puree forms. Add this spinach puree along with remaining cups of water to the rice. Stir it around. Add salt to taste. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and let it cook on low covered. Keep checking Every 5 minutes or so to make sure its not sticking to the bottom. Take a grain of rice from the pot and test for doneness. If you feel rice is still little hard but it's getting dry, add little more water.
