My daughter deeksha doesn’t like most of the vegetables. So I always look for different ways to include them. Mostly I will puree them and add to chapati dough or use them in pulao, biryani or any type of rice. Spinach rice is one of her regular lunch box recipes and she now likes to eat it. It is very easy to prepare and then mix with cooked rice.

  • Spinach flavored rice is a great way to feed kids with the leafy greens. I never added tamarind to it thought. Next time I will try your version. Thank you for the kind words about me and the lovely introduction you gave about my blog.
