MINT RICE / ALOO PUDINA BAATH

26 Oct

Mint is also known as pudina in local language so here i am with an easy to cook instant jatpat spicy mint flavoured rice recipe  … I can say a perfect tiffin box or a quick fix to lunch or dinner with leftover rice or even you can enjoy it for breakfast 😊

Here the aroma and freshness of mint and caraway seeds enhances the taste and adds a wonderful flavour to the dish..

You can even add veggies of your choice ,fried cashews to make it more interesting but i love this with potatoes 😃

Now lets see how this simple recipe begins

INGREDIENTS 

•1 large bowl cooked rice or 1 cup rice(uncooked)

•3 green chilles (add as per taste and spicyness)

•1 cup fresh mint/ pudina leaves

•1 tsp Caraway seeds /shah jeera (1/2 tsp extra for seasoning)

•1″ginger 

•1/4 tsp Turmeric

•2 potatoes

•1 tsp lime juice

•3 tblsp oil

•Salt as per taste

METHOD

▪Wash and peel potatoes, cube them and add to a bowl with water (to avoid colour changing in potatoes)

▪Now in a mixi jar add pudina,green chillies ,shah jeera,ginger and grind to fine paste using little water

▪Now heat a kadai add oil ,add shah jeera let this pop awhile add cubed potatoes (discard water) ,salt ,turmeric and fry for 5 minutes or till potatoes are cooked or you can use cooked potatoes to save time

▪Add ground paste along with little water cook well till oil starts separating add cooked rice mix well check salt add if necessary add,close lid and  cook on low flame till all the flavours and spices are influence well with rice 

▪ Add lime juice as required and enjoy piping hot with onion raita and papad

NOTES

*If cooking with uncooked rice then start process in a cooker add water 1:2 and take 3 whistles

*one can use oil + Ghee instead of only oil

*Any vegetables can be added to make it a nutritious one pot meal

*i make it spicy so i add nearly 4 green chilles to a big bowl of cooked rice but it depends upon individual taste

*at the end you can even give a tadka of fried cashews or peanut to add crunch in your bite
