A perfect rice delicacy to enjoy the authentic flavours of Northern India, the Lehsuni Palak Chawal is sure to steal your hearts with its pleasant green colour and vibrant flavour. Although this garlicky spinach rice is prepared with minimal ingredients, it has a lingering flavour and strong, spicy aroma. It is easy to prepare, and healthy too, as this recipe goes easy on the fat, thereby improving the absorption of calcium from the spinach.
