Parsley Rice

Parsley can be used as a herb, a spice or a vegetable. It has it's own unique flavour and taste. It has many health benefits because of its healing properties. So, I tried raw and  in salads with lemon but did not like it much so cooked it with rice and what a yummy dish it came out to be!

In a long bottom pan or a cooker, heat oil and fry onion till transparent.

Add ginger garlic paste and green chillies.

Add the veggies and fry for a minute.

Add chopped parsley and give a stir.

Add salt and lemon juice and mix well.

Add water and bring it to boil.

Add Rice, give it a mix and close the lid of the pressure cooker. Take it out of the flame after 1 whistle.

If you are not using a pressure cooker, cook till the rice is soft and cooked.

Serve this yummy and aromatic rice hot.

  • Don't use jasmine rice since it changes the aroma completely.
  • I have not used garam masala or any other masala since it does not go well with the aroma of parsley.
