Carrot and Spinach Rice

When I first read this recipe in one of my recipe books, I didn't think too much of it. My husband likes to take "spoon-foods" to work. So its mostly rice. I always run short of ideas on what kind of rice to make as we are not regular rice-eaters. So I gave this recipe a shot - and it turned out just amazing - so different from any other rice that I have eaten.


Preparation Time: 10-15 min
Cooking Time: 10-15 min
Serves: 4


2 cups cooked Rice
1/2 tsp Jeera
2 Onions, sliced
2 Garlic cloves, chopped
2/3 cup grated Carrot
2 cups chopped Spinach
1 tblsp Oil / Ghee
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil / ghee in a pan and add Jeera. When it crackles, add onions and garlic and saute for 3 min.
  2. Add carrots, spinach and saute for another minute.
  3. Add rice, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup water and mix well.
  4. Simmer and cook for 5-7 min till the moisture evaporates.
  5. Serve hot.
