Cilantro Rice

Coriander leaves has so many essential vitamins and minerals for a human body.It acts as a anti-oxidant and antibacterial agent.It can be used as a medicine to control cholestrol and sugar.When my H bought 3 bunches for a dollar,I cannot resist myself in preparing this dish.Coriander rice is a flavourful ice,when prepared,ur house will surely be filled with its aroma.Today we had cilantro rice with eggplant fry and onion raitha.It went well with my family.
Ingredients:
1. Basmati rice            -  2 cups
2.Cilantro                  -   1 bunch
3.Mint leaves              -   1 cup
4.Onion                       -  1
5.Green chillies          -  6
6.whole garam  masalas
7.Ginger                     -     1/2 inch
8.Garlic                     -    4 pods

Method:
* Chop the onion lenghthwise and slit the green chillies.
* Wash and grind the cilantro,mint leaves,ginger,garlic with 2 green chillies.
* Make into a fine paste .
* Wash the basmati rice and soak it in water for 15 mins.
* Take a pressure cooker pour 1 tsp of ghee and fry the basmati rice for few minutes and keep it aside.
* In the same cooker add oil and splutter with  whole garam masalas.
* Saute onion and remaining 2 green chillies till they ooze out oil.
* Pour the grinded  mixture into the cooker and saute it with onions.
* When it  looses its raw smell, add 4 cups of water and bring it to a boil.
* Slowly add the fried basmati rice into the cooker and mix it well.sprinkle salt to taste.
* Transfer the content to the rice cooker.( Chk the rice in between).
 When the rice is cooked pefectly,transfer the rice immediately to another container, this will make the rice non-sticky.Serve it with ritha and eggplant fry.

Savitha, on Maitri comment @ Reshmi's blog, I would say, you should send enough quantity to prepare at least one serving of a meal, for example, I sent Reshmi, 1 cup of barley, thinking that should be sufficient and then your fellow blogger can buy and add more if needed. Hope that makes sense.
