Rajma Pulavo

Rajma Pulavo...its my own invention,made it for our lunch today.Actually I was not feeling well suffering with fever and throat infection and just wanted to make mango pulihora/lemon pulihora for which I cooked the rice by adding little turmeric powder to it.As usual I calle my Mom-In-Law to say Hi and then she aske me what are you preparing for lunch then I told her that I wanted to make Pulihora then she told that dont have pulihora as u r not feeling well and this will over-heat the body and ur throat infection may become worse,in the mean time the rice with turmeric was cooked and I didnt know what to make and I just opened my fridge then I found few Rajma boiled and kept then I thought of making this Rajma Pulavo to which I added
a bunch of fresh Spinach.It turned out awesome.
Rice:1.5 cups(Uncooked)
Rajma:1 cup(Boiled)
Onion:1/2(Chopped lenght wise)
Potato:1 medium(peeled n diced)
Carrot:1(Peeled n boiled)
Spinach:1 bunch(Washed n chopped)
Ginger garlic paste:1 spn
Salt:to taste
Green Chillies:6-7
Pulavo Masala:1.5 spns
Bay Leaves:3
Oil:3 spns
Shajeera:3/4 spn
Turmeric:1/2 spn
1.Wash the rice and add 3 cups of water and mix in the turmeric powder and cook it.
2.Heat oil in a pan,when hot add the shajeera and when they splatter add the bay leaves and chopped onions and fry till they turn transculate,now add in the ginger garlic paste and fry till it leaves the raw flavor,now add the diced potato,carrot,boiled rajma and chopped spinach mix well and now add in the salt,green chillies and cook on medium flame till the spinach,potato n carrot becomes smooth.
3.Now add the pulavo masala,chopped tomato and mix well,fry it for 5-8 mins by now all the
veggies turn smooth and r done,check for the seasonings.Adjust it necessary.
4.It is the time for the cooked rice to be added,add the boiled rice and mix well so that the rice is evenly coated with all the spices and cover it and put the heat on low flame for 5 mins and then turn off the heat.
5.Serve it hot with any Raitha or thick curds.I served it with my Fav boondhi Raitha.
My experiment was a big hit and my hubby asked me to make it again in the coming days.I was happy that he liked it.I too njoyed the taste of Rajma and potato cooked with few spices....
U can use white rice to make this dish for which u can avoid adding turmeric powder to the rice while cooking.
