Here is a simple, easy-to-prepare dish that has an inviting aroma and irresistible flavour! Hariyali Chawal involves simply cooking rice with an assortment of spices, before mixing in a generous dose of chopped coriander. Interestingly, the coriander is not ground into a paste but simply chopped finely and mixed into the rice as soon as it is cooked. This gives it a really appetising look and unique flavour. The garnish of fried onions is as important as the coriander for the success of this dish, so spare a few minutes to prepare it. Serve hot with Teen Ratna Dal and Gajar Gobhi Aur Aam ka Achaar .
