This is a very simple and very flavourfull rice dish which goes well with any Continental Veg or non veg gravy…I had served it with vegetables in peei peri sauce and it was a hit combination.
I have made this rice only with spinach and garlic,but can alternatively be made with green peas,cauliflower,corn kernels,bell pepper,broccoli,french beans, carrots and potatoes and spiced with Indian spices.
2 cups Spinach (Palak) roughly chopped.
6 cloves Garlic peeled and chopped.
2 cup cooked Basmati Rice.
1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes.
1 tbsp Butter.
Salt to taste.
Blanch spinach in boiling hot water for 5 minutes,drain and give it a cold water wash.
Once cold add to a blender jar and make puree,keep aside.
In a pan heat butter,add garlic and chilli flakes sauté for a minute, add pureed spinach and saute well.
Now add cooked rice,mix gently cover and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove in a serving bowl and serve hot with gravy of your choice.
