Spinach Rice

A month back we had a potluck at one of our friend's place. My friend Raki got Spinach rice for entree. I really loved that rice item. Today I have decided to make the same recipe for dinner. Thanks Raki for sharing the recipe.

Here is the recipe.


Spinach - 1 bunch
Rice - 2 cups
6 green chillies ( increase or decrease as per your spice level)
ginger - 1/2 inch
salt - as per taste
garlic - 2 pods
corn kernels - 1 cup (Optional)
capsicum - 1 chopped in strips (optional)
onion - 1 medium size cut in strips
1 tomato - chopped finely
1tbsp cashew nuts (Optional)


Cook rice (using 1:2 ratio of rice to water). Once rice is cooked spread it out in a wide pan and cool it.
Blanch spinach and drain it well. Once its well drained add spinach, green chillies and ginger into a mixie and grind it smooth paste. (don't add too much water)

In a wok add oil. Once oil is hot add cashew nuts and garlic fry till they are light brown then add onions. Once onions turn brown color add capsicum, corn and tomato. Cook for 5 more minutes and then add spinach paste and cook for 1 more minute. (To avod decolorization of spinach don't cook too much after adding spinach paste.)
Now add rice and salt and mix well. Remove from stove.

Delicious spinach rice is ready to be served. Serve with raita.
