Easy as well as Tasty Home Preparation
Recipe by christy gerald of Dubai, AE
very tasty rice -can be prepared quickly.
I am my husband loved this rice i did not have green chillies so i added 1/2 tsp of red chili powder and i did not grind mint or ginger. I ground fennel seeds, cardamom, cinnamon stick, cloves into a fine powder and the dish turned out to be really really awesome. God bless you Christy for all the recipes all your recipes are great
Hi hfshama!.Thanks a lot for giving ur feedback.U can try this Mint Rice with cumin seeds instead of fennel seeds(if u don't like the fennel flavour).U can try this rice without pasting the mint leaves(paste ginger,g.chillies and cumin or fennel seeds)-in this case add the soaked basmati rice and 2 1/2 cups water and pressure cook rice with spices along(not doing it separately and adding).
very tasty christy. 1 more easy and quick type of rice to pack for lunch!
Hi Sadiya!,Thank u so much.Note: Add 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste and the ground ginger-mint paste in step 3 after sauting the chopped onions-to make it taste better.
iits good and just very easy to prepare .thanks christy
Hi Mariya, thank you so much for trying the Mint rice .It is very esy to do also.
hi! christy your mint rice is so tasty, i like so much
Please note that the chopped Mint leaves should not exceed 2 to 2 1/2 cups.(you can add 1/2 tsp lime juice to the masala before adding the chopped spring onions and chopped capsicum but it is optional)
You can fry 12 no.s of cashews(cut into pieces) first in the ghee-oil, before starting the dish and keep it aside.
Add it to the done-Mint rice with 1tsp chopped mint leaves on top.
