This one-dish meal is a delight for the diner! Herby rice with the prominent flavour of coriander is coated with a creamy spinach sauce and a peppy tomato gravy. Together the two saucy layers give the rice dish a luscious mouth-feel and an unforgettable flavour. A topping of cheese adds to the flavour as well as texture of this dish, making it a truly exciting bowlful to place on the table for lunch or dinner.
