Palak Pulao

Palak(Spinach) is one of my favourite veggies and endorsed by Popeye. But apart all that its a a veggie high on nutrition. So in one of the cookery shows I happen to see a recipe of Palak Pulao. And it tempted me to make my own version. So here it is.

Need :
1 Bunch of Spinach
2 onions
2 tbs green chilly-ginger-garlic paste
2 cups of Basmati rice
Salt to taste
1 carrot; shredded
2 tbs ghee
1 clove
3-4 cashews cut in two halves

Way:
1. Cook the rice before hand and keep it aside
2. Cut Onions in to long strands as shown below


3. Wash Palak before using so as to remove dirt. Take a vessel and put water,salt and palak in to and boil for 5-7 minutes till the leaves become tender enough( This procedure is know as blanching - though not sure)
4. Grind the spinach and ginger + garlic paste and 2-3 green chilies together and form a thick paste.
5. Heat ghee in a thick bottom vessel, add Jeera and mustard seeds then add chopped onions and stir fry for 3 minutes. Add other ingredients such as cashews
6. Add thick palak paste,rice and little water.
7. Mix evenly and cook for 5-7 mins.
8. Dress it with shredded carrot to give a good colour combination
