Aloo Rice | Easy Aloo rice with Leftover rice | Potato Rice - There are umpteen dishes that can be made with leftover Rice but this Potato Rice that can be made in a jiffy is really special. There are very few recipes that everyone likes. And this is one recipe that is aromatic and is popular with everyone.

I have just modified a recipe that my mother used to make since our childhood. She just used fresh Coriander. I have changed it and added Mint and Curd to prevent the colour from changing and for getting a nice, savoury taste. This Coriander and Mint paste is a little like Punjabi Hariyali Chutney.

This Rice tastes great with cool Raitha.

Tips

Potatoes:

  1. Peel the Potatoes and cut them into medium-sized pieces.

  2. If you take very old or sprouted Potatoes, then they taste sweet. So use fresh Potatoes.

Some more tips:

  1. If you like, you could make the same recipe with Brown Rice.

  2. This can be made with leftover Rice or fresh hot Rice. If the Rice is too hard, you can mix the Mint paste while there is still some Water in it and it will soften the Rice.

  3. If the Tomato pieces are a little big, then you can taste them under your teeth. Or they get mixed in the Rice.

  4. The flavours will stick nicely if you toss the Rice on a high flame.
