Recipe of Vegetable Spinach Rice | Palak Rice

Green spinach rice with vegetables is delicious, nutritious and flavorful. It is easy to cook, healthy and absolutely scrumptious. Spinach is healthy and full of Iron. I love finding different ways to include spinach in our diet and I think this is the best option. It is scrumptious and filling one pot healthy meal. It can be a very good tiffin dish too. Most of the kids don't like spinach, it is the best way to make them eat spinach. Green rice looks beautiful and aroma of herbs and spices used in it make it tempting.
