DSC_1919 - Copy

             Whenever I went to grocery store, never forget to take mint leaves. As my daughter loves any kind of mint flavored dish like paratha, chutney, riceSmile with tongue out. Today I want to share an easy to make with less effort Pudina flavored rice. Its healthy one pot meal. Pudina has very strong flavor and good for digestion, so I am trying to prepare 2/3 times in a month. This is the best idea to give it in a kids lunch box. Even bachelor can cook this rice easily and enjoy !
