Today is "Adi-perukku".On this day we usually make different types of rice.Radhika has announced  "Blog hop Wednesday",She has paired us with each blogger one one day.Before starting this I must appreciate first Radhika for her beautiful blog-,and she had paired me with  Priya, who has a wonderful blog announcing many events etc.I chose Palak-thulsi chawal.In addition to this I made Mango rice,curd  rice and Jaggery rice.Since it was a festival day for us I did not use onion and garlic.
Here goes the recipe:
Palak (Chopped )-2cups
Thulsi (I used dried one)-1/2 cup
Tomato-1/2 cup
Turmeric powder-1tsp
Red chilly powder-1tsp
Cumin powder-1tsp
Coriander powder-1tsp
salt to taste
Green chillies-2
Ginger paste 1tsp
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp

Cook the rice in a pressure cooker or rice cooker .
In a kadai add oil,mustard,and cumin seeds and let it splutter.
Add the tomato, green chilly and ginger , fry till all the water evaporates.
Now add the chilly powder,cumin powder,coriander powder turmeric powder and salt.
Palak and thulsi are added to this mixture and cook it till it is done.
Mix the cooked rice with this.
Aromatic palak,thulsi rice is ready!!!!!
