Rice - 2 cups (preferrably basmati rice)
Spinach - 2 cups
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 medium sized
Green peas - 1/2 cup
Cumin / Jeera - 1 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1 tablespoon
Oil - 2 tablespoons
Green chilies - 2
Garlic cloves - 4
Ginger - 1/2 inch
Salt as per taste
Wash and soak the basmati rice. Chop the garlic, ginger, onions and green chillies finely. You can mince the ginger, garlic and chillies together if you want.
Wash the spinach well to remove all the sand grains if any and chop them roughly.
In a pressure cooker, add the oil and add cumin seeds. Once they start spluttering, add the onions and saute till they turn translucent. Add the ginger, garlic, green chillies and saute for a minute. Add the chopped spinach, coriander leaves, green peas along with salt, garam masala and a little turmeric powder. Once the spinach wilts, add the soaked rice along with 4 cups of water and stir all the ingredients together.
Close the pressure cooker and cook until the rice is done.
Serve warm with a simple raita.
It is just that simple!
