I had just a little spinach left and I was pressed for time on one morning and so I cooked up this Palak rice. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my family enjoyed eating it for lunch. Please feel free to tweak the recipe by adding other vegetables or sauteed Paneer or sauteed Tofu. Also adjust the spice levels as per individual preferences. Here is how my family liked..

Ingredients - 

Palak Blanched 1 cup
Onion chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato chopped 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves (Cilantro) a few sprigs
Turmeric 2 pinches
Salt as per taste
Green Chillies 2-3 (as per taste)
Rice 1.5 cups
Lemon juice 2 tsp (Optional)
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Cloves 2-3, Cinnamon 1 inch, Jeera 1 tsp)

Method Of Preparation - 

Cook Rice and let it cool down in a wide bowl.

In a sauce pan, heat oil and add the seasonings and saute chopped onions.

After the onions are sauteed, add tomato paste or chopped tomatoes , chopped green chillies and turmeric.

Grind the blanched Palak (Spinach) and coriander leaves (Kothimeera) add to the mixture. 

Switch off the flame and add salt and mix well.

Add this mixture to the cooled rice and mix well. Check for salt and squeeze in some lemon juice if required.
