Cooking & preparation time : 10-15 mins

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice (brown or white) – brown rice is healthier than white rice as it has got lower cholesterol level and aids antioxidant activities.(I have used white rice here)
  • 2 cups water for white rice and 2 1/2 cups for brown rice as it requires a little more water than white rice.

  • 1/2 cup corn

  • 1 green chilli
  • 1 spoon garam masala
  • 2 spoons lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 spoon oil or desi ghee

Steps: 

  • Wash and soak rice for 5 mins, you can soak for longer as it takes lesser time to cook if you soak for a long period that is around 20- 30 mins.
  • Wash spinach leaves in cold water, chop them in big pieces and soak in water.
  • In a pressure cooker add oil and cumin seeds and let it splutter then add green chilli and garam masala, now add rice, spinach leaves and corn, turmeric powder, salt and water, cover it and cook until it whistles 4-5 times on high to medium flame.
  • Now add lemon juice and serve hot.
