Reposting Cilantro Rice

We went to my co sister's house last winter when her parents had also come. Her mom made this rice and I loved it. It was very simple and tasty. I learnt lots of recipes from her. In fact I learnt lots of cooking details from her during the time I stayed at their place. This dish has lots of flavor. Let me get to the recipe straight.


Mixed Vegetables - 1 Cup
Cumin powder - 1 tsps
Corriander powder - 1 tsps
Onion - 1/2 chopped
Oil - 1 tbsps
Basmati Rice - 1 cup

To Grind:

Cilantro 1 bunch
Cloves - 2
Cardomom - 1
Tomato - 1
Ginder - 1 tsps chopped
Garlic - 2-3 pods
Cumin powder - 1 tsps
Corriander powder - 1 tsps
Green Chilli - 1-2


Grind all the above said ingredients to grind. Grind it to a smooth paste. Need not add water. The water in tomato and cilantro is good enough.

Soak basmati rice in water for about 15 mins

In a pan, heat oil and add onions. Fry till it becomes translucent. Now add this groung paste and fry till the fresh green color changes to dark green. The color will change and the raw smell will fade.

Now add vegetables and mix well. Fry it for another minute

Now add rice, salt and mix everything well.

Add 2 cups water and transfer it to rice cooker.

Aromatic cilantro rice will fill your house with rich aroma and flavor.
