Palak Pulao

If you are not a big fan of this slimy thick greens called Palak, just turn around to see me back you with raised hands. I don't hate palak but I don't enjoy it too much other than the delicious Palak Paneer. But then the greens has loads of goodness in it like iron etc, hence cooking with it is a must in my kitchen. 

This time it was a rice that I wanted to make with it for packing lunch boxes for people at home. Hence here is Palak pulao that even the 'no no greens' people would also enjoy :)

Cook rice and separate the grains. 

Peel the onions and slit green chilies. Chop the tomatoes finely. 

Wash and chop the palak. Take a tsp of oil in a pan and fry the chopped palak by sprinkling a little water on it. Close and cook for some time. Allow it to cool. 

Take a tsp of oil in a pan and fry red chilies and coriander seeds. Now grind the cooked palak, cashew nuts  coconut, coriander seeds and red chilies together into a smooth paste by adding little water. 

Now heat 2 tsps of oil in a large pan and add cinnamon and cloves. Then add the split green chilies and small onion and fry for few minutes . Now add tomatoes and fry for few minutes. Finally add the ground palak paste and fry till it starts smelling good :)

Now add salt and mix well. Finally add the cooked rice and give it a good stir until everything is mixed well. 

Serve hot with raitha of your choice.
