Catering Style Green Coriander Rice



  1. I made this with Basmati Rice. But you can make it with normal Rice too but just remember to add ½ cup extra Water.

  2. I have made it separately in a vessel but you could cook it in a cooker too. Then the proportion of water should be 1.1/2 for Basmati and 2 Cups water for regular Rice.


  1. Spices should be just a little in this Rice because they dominate the gentle fragrance and flavor of Green Coriander.


  1. The entire Mirchi has to come from Green Chillies. Do not add Red Chilli Powder.
