coriander-mint brown rice

Comments : 2 Posted in : Main course on by : apsara Tags: , ,

This  is a wonderful sattvik recipe that makes brown rice taste delicious. I got this idea of using fresh coriander-mint paste from my co-sister. This is my version of it:


fresh coriander- 2 bunches

fresh mint- 1 bunch

green chilies- 2-3

tomato- 2

frozen green peas- a handful

asafoetida (powder)- a pinch

mustard seeds- a few

canola oil- 1 tbsp.

turmeric powder- a pinch


* Wash and grind coriander, mint leaves and green chilies with very little addition of water.

* Heat oil, fry mustard seeds and asafoetida . Add roughly chopped tomatoes. Add peas, salt, turmeric;  saute till most of the water has gone.

* Add coriander-mint paste, let simmer for a few minutes. Try not to overcook the green mixture, or the fresh taste of the herbs goes away.

* For additional taste and protein, lightly fried paneer/cheese cubes may be added. This also serves to absorb excess water.


* Mix lightly with cooled basmati brown rice, with some oil.

    This is a nice recipe – should try it some time. I make something similar but more on the lines of pudina pulav. (so it is with onion and garlic)
