Herb Mania - Pudhina

Pudhina is one of my favourite herbs , first being coriander. I just love coriander in anything and everything. Pudhina is no inferior , I love it for the medicinal values it has. It aids in digestion a lot.

My entry for Herb Mania this month is Pudhina Rice. I did it for lunch last sunday. It was accompanied by Veggie Kurma and Potato chips .


Pudhina - 1 Cup Full ( Cleaned and Washed )

Basmati rice - 2 cups

Green chillies - 2

Ginger and Garlic Paste

Cloves , Cinnamon Stick - 1 0r 2 each

Coriander - 1 cup

Coconut - 1/2 cup.

Salt to taste


Soak the Basmati rice in water for 15 mins and set aside. In a blender add Pudhina , Coriander, Coconut , Green Chillies and make a smooth paste. In a wok heat a little oil and add clove along with Cinnamon. Add the Ginger garlic paste along with the pudhina coriander paste in the wok . Add taste with a little salt. When this paste is sauted a bit , add the rice and mix well. Let the mixture stay on for 5mins. Then transfer the contents into a cooker add 2 cups of water and steam it . Once done remove from heat and serve with Raitha, Kurma and Potato Chips. Happy Herbal Eating.
