HERBAL RICE

The most commonly used herbs in Indian cooking are Coriander, Mint and Curry leaves.  Any of these herbs when added to the dish gives wonderful aroma and taste. Then imagine how it tastes when they are added together in one dish. Yah it is herbal rice which my mom used to do make very often. This rice tastes so so delicious and has to be eaten hot. It does not require any accompaniment but you can have this with roasted potatoes or chips.

The pictures look really nice. readily available ingredients and easy to prepare dish.

Simple ingredients can make the most lavish food and this is testament to that saying.

My mom used to make ghee rice with just pudina and cilantro - and this looks totally like that. Comfort food at its best! I'm making this for my lunch soon - maybe with some hot cauliflower kurma!

Awesome Pavi!
