  • 1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic chilli paste
  • 2 tsp chopped mint leaves, fresh or dried
  • 2 tbsp sambhar powder
  • 1/2 tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp haldi/turmeric powder

How to make Spinach & Carrot Rice

  1. Heat oil in a wok. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Once they crackle, add chopped spring onions, chopped onions and ginger garlic chilli paste. Saute till the onions turn pink and translucent.
  2. Add chopped tomatoes, capsicum, grated carrots and spinach leaves. Add salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, sambhar powder and pav bhaji masala. Add 5 tbsp water and cover the wok with a lid for about 5 minutes till veggies are little done.
  3. After a few minutes, add the soaked rice without water and mix everything well. Then add about 1 cup water and cook on high flame till bubbles appear on the surface of the rice.
  4. Once you see the bubbles, add mint leaves, garam masala and dhania powder and switch the flame to low and cook the rice with the lid on till the rice is cooked. You can add more water in case required.
  5. Serve hot garnished with chopped spring greens and mint leaves. Serve with raita and mint chutney for a wholesome experience.

My Tip:

Method for the boiled rice version: Boil the rice in sufficient water separately and cook the veggies separately as mentioned till Step 2. Once the veggies are cooked and water is evaporated from the veggies, add mint leaves, garam masala and dhania powder. Mix well and then add boiled rice and mix with light hands so that rice grain does not break. Serve hot garnished with spring greens.
