Palak Pulao

A simple, easy to make Palak Pulao which is a one pot meal. You may serve it with a Raita, but the Pulao is so fragrant that it doesn’t need any accompaniment. I thank my friend Ashwini Kulkarni for sharing this wonderful recipe with me.


2 cups of leftover cooked Basmati rice

1 cup Palak washed and chopped

1 large onion slit vertically

1 green chilli cut

1/4 tspn chilli powder

1/4 tspn Biryani masala

1/2 inch piece of ginger grated

2 cloves of garlic grated


2 tsps Ghee

3 tsps oil

1/2 tsp Jeera/ cumin seeds


Heat the oil and ghee mixture in a pan. Drop in the Jeera. After it splutters add the sliced onion, finely grated ginger and green chilly. . Saute this mixture on a low flame till the onions are translucent . Add the chopped Palak, the chilly powder and Biryani masala. Tip in the salt and saute till the Palak is cooked. Add the cooked rice, mix thoroughly , cover and heat for a few minutes.
