OK. I will tell you!
Yesterday we visited a place called “Mystery Spot” in Santa Cruz, CA. It was
awesome. We were taken to a special
cabin where the strange effects happened. There was a friendly guide who was
making funny jokes showed us some tricks like balls rolling uphill and water
flowing up the spout. We were like standing around in impossible angles defying
gravity. I felt like I was riding a roller coaster and it was fun to lose
control for some time, but not for long. Totally it was so fun.
OK. I am done! I won’t bore you much :)
Now let’s go the recipe today: I recently prepared a rice
item for dinner with a combination of mango and spinach. Adding mango to rice (just
like mango pulihora) gave it a little sour touch which was so good.
Ingredients: (For 2-3 persons)
2 cups Basmati Rice (I used brown Basmati Rice) + 4 cups
1 cup grated Mango (Green Mango)
1 cup chopped Spinach
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
A pinch of Turmeric Powder
1 tbsp Oil
4 small Green Chilies, chopped
1 tsp red Chili Powder
2 cloves of Garlic, thinly sliced
Wash and soak basmati rice for 15 minutes. While it is
getting soaked, let’s do the other preparation.
Heat oil in a pressure pan and add cumin seeds + green
chilies + spinach + mango and sauté well.
To this, add turmeric powder + garlic + chili powder and mix
Finally add soaked rice and stir well.
Then pour water and mix well. Add required amount of salt
and mix well again.
Put the cooker (pressure pan) lid on top with the whistle on
and leave it for some time on medium flame until you hear 3 whistles.
Then turn off the flame and allow all the pressure to go
away. Fluff with a fork and serve with raita or just plain yogurt.
