Palak Rice / Spinach Rice

Palak Rice


When rice is in the menu for lunch , as far as possible I try to go for a one pot meal, for two reasons.....


You can guess the first one....And that is my laziness to make elaborate side dishes separately....And the second one is because of my son...He likes to take rice for his preschool and if it is a one pot meal , it is easy for him to have it with spoon....
