This is my most favourite rice , i remember my school and college days when i used to take this as my lunch for atleast twice in a week .My mom used to have greens daily ....i used to ask for this simple yet yummy rice   .


Spinach - 3 bunches

Channa dal and Moong dal - 2 tbsps (soak it for an hour to become soft)
Red Chillies -2
Onion -  1 finely sliced
Sal to taste
Gingelly oil
Mustard and Jeera - 1 tsp
Soft cooked rice


1) Cook rice with 3 cups of water .
2) Heat oil in a kadai . Once hot , add mustard and Jeera .When it splutters , add chillies and soaked dal till dal is half cooked .
3) Followed by sliced onion and saute till tender.
4)Add spinach and sprinkle little water . Cover with a lid and cook till done .
5) Add salt and mix it up well .
6) Serve hot , mixing it up with rice and a spoon of gingelly oil . This is good for toddlers .
