Note: Similar to red rice, you can prepare colourful green rice by using green spinach or palak leaves. You can simply sauté chopped leaves in ghee/oil (or a combination of both) adding a little cumin seeds and chopped ginger. Then add cooked rice to it. Decorate with curry leaves/coriander leaves/mint leaves. You can serve this rice with papad, raita or any vegetable salad of your choice.
