Broccoli Rice !



Although I'm a huge fan of rice...you must've noticed that on my blog, I don't have many rice recipes...maybe because I eat quite a lot of rice, so I don't think much about it and always forget to take pics of my rice dishes...but this time my hubby and kids reminded to me to take pics of this particular rice dish which is very popular within the family..If I make this broccoli rice we don't need any other dish, just one big meal with yogurt or Raita and we all are happy...:-))

You will need:-
  • 1 cup rice
  • Few spices like cloves, cinnamon, cardamoms and bay leaves
  • 1 cup broccoli florets(steamed)
  • 1/4 cup cashewnuts and raisins
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 1/2 " ginger piece
  • 1/4 cup fresh or dry coconut powder
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
Method:-

Cook rice with all the spices and salt,(each grain must be seprated) and let it cool.  Grind the ingrediants(onion, garlic. chilli,ginger, coriander and coconut powder) with little water.  In a heavy bottom pan heat the oil and add cumin seeds, after splutter, add cashews, raisins and broccoli and let it cook for few minutes. Now add green grinded paste and mix very gently and let it cook for 2 minutes.  add cooled rice and mix really well.  Ready to serve..really goes well with any type of raita, but we love to have it with Masala boondi raita..Enjoy as much as we did...

And this month Priti hosting her event Festive Food : His Cooking Event ...so hey buddies take a glance and do send your entries to her beautiful event..who knows maybe it will benefit you after all...:-))
