Some days I have urge to make just simple recipes.One such recipe is this variety rice.The known fact is,this fresh herb,coriander leaves are rich in nutrition and not only that,it adds great flavor to all dishes.The other day,I found fresh dark green coriander leaves in the store and immediately thought of this recipe.So,I made yummy warm comforting coriander rice in just minutes!!! Which is a great bargain for weekday box lunches and quick dinners...

1) Rice - 1 1/2 cups

2)To grind into paste:
1) Coriander leaves bunches - 2
2) Green chillies - 2 to 3
3) Ginger - 1 small piece

In a pressure pan,heat oil and saute the tempering ingredients one by one.Add the ground paste and saute for a minute or two till the raw smell goes.Next,add rice and fry for a minute,then add the required amount of water(I used 3 1/4th cups of water).Finally,add salt and close the lid,allow the required amount of whistles(I allowed 3 whistles).Switch off the stove and allow the pressure to release.Carefully mix and fluff the rice with a flat spoon.That's it,it is done!!!
