Palak Rice (Spinach Rice)



Now a days people do not have time to cook healthy food, eating out could be nice for some days, t home cooked food is a blessing, I love hot food served on plate.

For people who love cooing and wants to try varieties, here is one...........
You need a bunch of  spinach for 2 servings, cleaned properly

How to make it:

After washing Spinach grind it with tomato, green chilles.
In a pressure cooker add oil, add the paste and add rice, garam masala and salt.

The second method is the same but in a pressure cooker after adding oil add onion and garlic paste. after it is done then follow the same steps.
