Spinach Rice / Palak Pulao # 1

This is unique method to make palak rice. Again easy to prepare, just make a puree of palak / spinach. I would say its the best brunch and I will also say bachelors can make it too if they have access to Mixers/Grinders.
This is the one method I am posting today. I have come across another method of doing this too and I will be posting that soon.


  • Basmati Rice - 2 cups (soaked with salt water for 15 mins )
  • Spinach / Palak lvs - 1/2 bunch , Puree
  • Vegetables ( Potato, Peas, Carrots, Onions)
  • Tomato Puree /Paste - 2 tsp
  • Coconut milk - 1 tsp ( Optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Garam Masala - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Pulao leaf - 1
  • Chakke & Lavang - 1 + 2
  • Oil - 1/4 cup
  • Heat oil in a big pan. Add chakke and lavang and pulao leaf
  • Add onions stir fry till onion gets color changed
  • Add vegetables stir fry
  • Add Palak puree and tomato paste/puree, coconut milk(optional) bring to boil
  • Add salt, garam masala, chilli powder stir well and cook for 5 mins
  • Meanwhile if it is excess water in the rice drain a bit and add palak masala
  • Cook in the rice cooker or pressure cooker
  • Server hot with raita
