pudhina (Mint) Rice

click on the image for closer look :)
I grow mint leaves in my kitchen and that too fresh mint leaves has magical flavors, every time i make this my home smells all minty :)

I tried different ways and finally ended up finding the simplest, delicious and easier way to do it. 

Preparation time: 5 mins
cooking time : 10 mins (If the rice is ready to use)
Serving size : 2

INGREDIENTS:

Mint Leaves - 1 cup
Green chill - paste (With 1 large one or 2 small ones)
Ginger Garlic paste- 1 tbsp
shredded coconut / coconut powder - 1 - 2 tbsp
Finely chopped onion - 1/4 cups
salt to taste

Optional: Many use coriander leaves and whole garam masala as well. I dint prefer that way, you can go ahead and add.   

For seasoning:

Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
jeera - 1/4 tsp
groundnuts  and cashew nuts -  1/4 cups

DIRECTION:

  • Cook the rice and keep it ready
  • Make a paste of mint leaves, green chilli and grind it along with coconut without adding water. If it is required just sprinkle few drops.
  • In a pan, add oil and once it is hot drop in mustard seed and jeera and wait for it to splutter. 
  • Add onion and fry them till they turn brown.
  • Then add the nuts, once they turn their color then add the grind paste along with ginger garlic paste.
  • Add salt at this point and saute it for a minute.
  • Then add rice to it and mix well.
It goes well with cucumber raitha or onion raitha.

Note:

In this procedure instead of mint if you use coriander leaves its coriander rice and for that you don't to use onions,  :)!!
