Here is one more easy and tasty recipe. Mint.. mmm the name itself sounds refreshing.. so here we go...

You will need :

Mint leaves - 2 bunches
Rice - 2 cups (soaked in water for atleast 30 min)
Green Chillies - 4-5
Cumin seeds - about 1tbs
Cashew Nuts (optional)
Green Peas (optional)

To be done like this :

1. Grind the mint leaves, green chillies and some cumin seeds (add as little water as possible) and keep aside.
2. In a pressure cooker, heat oil and add cumin seeds and fry.
3. Add the mint paste and fry well for about 2 min an o low flame.
4. Add salt and add the soaked rice and mix well and fry for about 2 more min.
5. Add water (Measure : for 2 cups of rice add 3 cups of water including the mint paste).
6. Pressure cook on high for about 3 whistles.
7. Mix well and serve hot.

This one tastes really good with a raitha.
