God could not be everywhere and hence he made mothers. It’s so true, mothers person plays a vital role in  shaping our lives. The efforts they have put in is unmeasurable and the value is realised only when we are in their position. Today, on this wonderful day, I attribute this post to my dear mom. My wishes to all mother’s out there. 
    Spinach rice is a tasty dish which I have picked it from my mom. It is healthy as it contains iron, zinc and calcium. This recipe is simple and hence  does not need elaborate cooking. Let’s get cooking ! 

Ingredients : 

  • Rice 2 cups
  • Spinach 2 clusters
  • green chilli 3
  • ginger 1 inch
  • garlic 2 cloves
  • onion 2
  • oil 3tbsp
  • cinnamon 2 small sticks
  • cloves 3
  • salt to taste

Method :

  • Cook rice with four cups of water. The rice grains need to be seperated, hence do not add much water. Once done, remove it and put it in a wide plate to cool.
