Pudina [MINT] rice

Pudina (Mint) Rice

Prep time---5 minutes
cooking time 10 minutes
Rice - 1 cup boiled
Spring Onions - 2 chopped
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Pudina (Mint) - 1/2 bunch
Garlic - 2 flakes
Green chillies - 1


Grind pudina, garlic and green chillies and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. When it crackles, add spring onion and fry till transparent. Add pundina paste and rice and mix well. Cover with lid for 2 - 3 minutes.

Grow mint in your garden. Quite easy. After removing mint leaves, place mint sticks till approx 2-3 cms deep in a pot filled with soil. It takes 1 - 2 weeks for mint to grow. Pluck mint leaves whenever required. It will grow again in the pot. It is organic, free from pesticide and tastes definitely better than the ones bought from the shop.
