Palak/palakura/Spinach rice

We need:



Palak/ Spinach/ palakura 1bunch
Cilantro 2 cups
Onion 1 medium
Whole garam masalas( cardamom,cloves and cinnamon)
Green chillies 2
Curry leaves 6
Oil 4sps
Salt to taste



Method:



Cook rice as usual and keep aside.
Heat pan add 1 spoon oil and add washed and cut palak,cilantro and green chillies.
Cook till the water evaporates which comes for the veggies.
Cool and grind it to paste.
Heat the rest of the oil in the same pan and add lengthwise cut onions and whole garam masala and curry leaves.
Spices can be adjusted according to kids taste.
Cook till onions turn golden brown and add the palak paste.
Cook till oil looses and add rice and salt.
Mix well and let it rest for 2 mits and switch off the flame.
Serve hot.
I have served this with boiled eggs.
This is a very good way to feed kids who does not like spinach having it in different ways like dal, etc.
This way it would be colorful and easy to feed kids. As a kid i liked this palak rice a lot.
Sending this recipe to Srivalli's Kid's Delight.
