Green Rice Recipe Card


Hindi: chawal
How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

Ingredients for Green Rice Recipe

  • Rice 1 1/2 cups

  • Green Capsicum 2 tablespoons

  • Onion finely chopped 1

  • Garlic finely chopped 5 cloves

  • Tomatoes chopped 3 medium

  • Vegetable stock 3 cups

  • Salt to taste

  • Black pepper powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Green capsicums thin strips 2

  • Stuffed olives 1/2 cup


Step 1

Clean, wash and soak the rice for few minutes. Drain and keep aside. Heat one tablespoon oil in a pan, add onion and garlic and sauté till transluscent. Add tomatoes and stir-fry till tomatoes turn pulpy. Add the drained rice and sauté for two minutes. Add vegetable stock, salt and black pepper powder and mix well. Cover the pan and simmer gently for twenty minutes or until the rice is cooked.

Step 2

Just before serving, heat the remaining oil in another pan and stir-fry green capsicums till they are crisp while ensuring that they retain the colour. Add capsicum to the cooked rice and stir in gently. Garnish it with sliced olives and serve hot.
