Here’s a winner to a real North Indian flavour. Enjoy this traditional rice goody….
just minus the fat from it like I have done in this recipe as excess fat hinders with the
absorption of calcium in the body.

Preparation Time : 10 mins.
Cooking Time : 20 mins.

Serves 4.

6 cups spinach (palak), chopped and blanched
2 cups cooked rice
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 cup onions, finely chopped
15 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ cup tomatoes, finely chopped
2 tsp gingergreen chilli paste
salt to taste
1 tsp oil
1. Blend the blanched spinach in a blender to a thick purée. Keep aside.
2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan, add the cumin seeds.
3. When they crackle, add the onions and garlic and sauté till the onions turn translucent.
4. Add the tomatoes and ginger-green chilli paste and sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes.
