Dill Rice

I made this simple dill rice with peas for dinner. It was very tasty. It is so simple that no one can go wrong. Just throw in dill leaves and rice and in no time tasty meal would be ready. We enjoyed with baby potatoes and yogurt.


Basmati rice - 11/2 cup
Onion - 1/2 cup, thin sliced
Peas - 2/3 cup
Dill leaves - 1 cup
Green chilli  - 1, slit lengthwise
Cloves - 1
Cardamom - 1
Cinnamon - 1 in. piece
Oil - 1tsp


Wash the rice and soak in water for 15 min. Wash the peas and dill leaves. Chop the dill leaves. Heat oil in a pot, add cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and fry for a minute. Next, add the onions, green chilli and cook till translucent. Filter the water from the rice, add it, dill, and peas to the pot. Add 21/2 cups water, salt and adjust the salt to taste. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 min. Switch off the flame and let it be covered for another 5 min. That's it! Your meal is ready.


Lima beans can be used in place of peas.
