Coriander is one herb we regularly use in our Indian kitchens.With out coriander most of the dishes won't finish.This rice verietie is very good for helth and very easy to make with nice aroma .Few days back I read on the internet,that coriander leaves are very good for heavy metals detoxification.And this herb will increase the excreation of heavy metals in urine.And also I found 13 very good helth benefits of eating coriander here is the link--

What we need for coriander rice is.....

Basmathi rice-11/2 cup

coriander leaves-1/2 cup

ginger-1 inch piece

garlic-2 big cloves

green chillis-4-5[according to your taste

curd--1/2 cup


salt to taste

cinamon-1 inch piece



onion-1 small sliced

How to make....

1.wash and soak rice in 2 cups of water for 15min.

2.grind coriander leaves,ginger,garlic,green chillis in to a smooth paste

3.Heat ghee in a pan add cinamon,cloves,cardomom then add sliced onion and fry till soft

4.now add coriander paste fry till good smell comes then add curd mix well and cook till masala leaves the oil

5.now add rice with soaked water ,salt to taste mix well and cover and cook till done

If you like to add green peas and carrot you can add while cooking masala

You can add fryied cashews to this rice

I would like to serve this rice with onion raita or even plain curd
