Simple elegance, that describes the Palak Pulao best of all. Easy and tasty, this Spinach Rice is loaded with spinach and moong dal, and derives its flavour from ingredients like onions, green chillies and tomatoes.


You will be surprised to note that this Palak Rice does not use any spices, but still has a multi-faceted flavour that includes the pungency of onions and garlic, the spiciness of green chillies and the tanginess of tomatoes. Enjoy it hot and fresh, with a cup of curds or Green Tomato Kadhi .
