Pudina rice

 Anila,one of my good friend, treated me with pudina rice. The taste of her pudina rice is still on the tip of my tongue.I made this for the first time under her supervision.And it was a super duper success.Everyone liked it.

Pudina leaves - 2 bunches
Onion - 1 1/2
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 1/4tsp
Green Chilli - 4-5 nos
Green peas- 1/2 cup

Potato - 1 cup cut into cubes
Carrot- 1 cup cut into strips
Beans - 1 cup cut into strips
Tomato - 1 chopped
Garam Masala - 2 tsp
Oil- 4 tbsp
Salt to taste

Method
  First puree the onion and green chilli together and keep aside. In a pot add 4 tbsp of oil and add pureed onion and green chilli mix. Saute for 5 mins and then add ginger garlic paste. Saute till the mix gets almost brown in color.
    Add all the vegetables into the above mentioned onion mix, and saute for about 4-5 mins. Make the puree from pudina leaves bunch and add into it.then add salt as your taste. Cover and cook on low flame for about 8-10 mins.
