Palak Edamame Rice

For Day 3, Week 1 of BM #46, here is one  yet another lunch box favorite. This is best made with left over rice. It is a time saver in the morning rush hour if you have the rice ready.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any good pictures other than the one I posted.

Ingredients - 
Rice 1 1/2 cups (I used Sona Masoori Variety)
Palak, chopped and blanched 1 cup
Edamame, shelled and cooked 1 1/2 cups
Onion, chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato Paste 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Ginger-Garlic-Green Chilli paste as needed
Salt and Garam Masala as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Cashews handful)
Lemon Juice as needed

I sometimes add cloves, cinnamon and cardamom to the seasoning.

Method Of Preparation -

Cook the rice and spread the cooked rice in a wide bowl/plate.

In a pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After the mustard seeds pop and the urad dal and chana dal are golden brown, add the onions and saute until golden brown. 

Sprinkle turmeric. Add the ginger-garlic-green chilli paste, tomato paste and edamame. Mix well and add in the blanched spinach.

Mix in the salt and garam masala and transfer the mixture onto the rice.

Mix the mixture onto the rice well and squeeze in some lemon juice as needed.

Preparation Time 20 min
Serves 3-4
