Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Here is another method of making the refreshing pudhina rice :)

You will need :

Mint leaves - 2 bunches 
Onion-  1 medium finely chopped
Green Chillies - 7-8 or to your taste
Coconut grated/shredded - 1/4 cup
Cumin - abt 1-2 tbsp
Whole garam masala 
Cashews roasted for garnish
Green peas - a little more than 1/4 cup (optional)
Rice - 2 cups cooked and cooled (add little oil while cooking so that the grains won't stick!!)

You need to do :

1. Grind the mint leaves, green chillies and coconut to a fine paste.. add very little or no water while grinding.
2. In a wide pan/skillet heat oil and add the cumin, whole garam masala and onions and fry well. Don't burn the onions.
3. Now add the ground paste, salt and fry for about 5 min or so till the raw smell is gone.
4. Add the cashews and rice and mix well and serve hot with Raita.

Here you go
