Broccoli-Celery Rice

This is an other simple,healthy and delicious rice dish.As the days are getting hotter and humid I prefer to make one pot dishes more often for lunch and dinner.We had a get-together and had broccoli and celery for salad and some pieces were leftover.Did not feel like eating them raw any more and ended up making this rice dish with them.It tasted very delicious and we all enjoyed eating it.

Let us see how this rice is made--------------


Main Ingredients :
------------------------
Raw Rice...........................1.5cups
Broccoli Florets.................1med bunch
Celery Sticks.....................2small

Seasoning Ingredients :
-------------------------------
Canola Oil...............................1.5tbsp
Mustard Seeds........................1tsp
Cumin Seeds...........................1tsp
Bay Leaf..................................1
Cardamom..............................4
Pav Bhaji Masala.....................2tsp
Lemon Juice............................1tbsp
Salt..........................................to taste

Preparation :
--------------------
Cook the rice and keep it aside to cool down.Now take the rinsed broccoli florets and celery sticks and chop them finely in the chopper.Place a pan on the stove on medium high heat and add oil to it.Once the oil heats up add mustard seeds,cumin seeds,bay leaf and cardamom.


Once the seasoning starts to splutter add the finely chopped mix of broccoli and celery to the pan and cook for 2 minutes.


Now add turmeric and salt and cook for 1 more minute.


Now add pav bhaji masala to the cooked veggies and stir .


Now add the cooked rice to it,adjust salt and mix well till all the flavors blend in.


Finally switch off the stove and add lemon juice and stir well.


Delicious and healthy Broccoli-Celery Rice is ready to be served.


Note :
-----------
1) We enjoyed eating it as is with some yogurt as side.

2) If you don't like to eat broccoli or celery in raw form, this will be a great way to eat them.

  8. That is such a perfect kind of fusion of indo-western flavors, the veggies are non-indian but the preparation is. I love the addition of pav-bhaji masala in it.
