Palak Matar Chawal : A tasty and simple, easy to make pulao with all the goodness of Spinach with tiny green peas coming in between.

I made this Palak Matar Chawal on the eve of Dasara with a intention of making something different out of routine. Really liked the spinach flavour in the rice. This is so easy rice that can be made in a jiffy.

First of all I actually read a different version of this recipe with just the spinach in one of the Satvik Recipe Books, finally made my own modification to make it more aromatic and little strong in flavours. Unlike many other rice recipes this is a no onion no garlic rice recipe which is an added advantage.

Long grain Basmati Rice is used to make this Palak Matar Chawal. Even normal small grain rice can also be used. But when you are using basmati rice make sure you soak it in water for half an hour before cooking. This ensures long grainy rice.

I kept this Palak Matar Chawal simple by adding minimum spices.I realised that the combination of spinach and pepper powder is really awesome.This tastes great when served with a raitha or just curd and few papads.

You can also fry grean peas for a little longer time to get that extra crunch or just cook until soft. Furthermore the greenish colour of both spinach and green peas makes this rice attractive and appealing.
