Coriander Rice From Leftover Rice/ Coriander Fried Rice

We are never get tired of eating rice. Rice in various forms starting from simple plain boiled rice with kadhi or rajma to a varied form like zeera rice, mixed veg pulao, biryani, spinach rice, khichdi, fried rice to name a few.

Though mixed veg pulao is the most commonly made rice in my family, another form of rice that we all love to have is coriander rice. I mostly make this rice in winters, when fresh coriander is in abundance. We can make coriander rice from scratch or if you have some leftover rice, that’s the tastiest way to utilise them.

My today’s recipe that I’m also sending in  blogging marathon under my this week’s theme rice dishes, is coriander rice. I’m making this rice from leftover rice.

Coriander paste/chutney is generally added to the rice to make coriander rice. But I use chopped coriander because my kids don’t like completely green rice that are obtained by adding paste of coriander. To make my coriander rice spicy and tangy, I use green chili and lemon juice. I add some carrots and peas to make them more nutritious and colorful. I’m sure you’ll love these flavorful rice. So make them before your fresh bunch of coriander gets wilted 🙂

Here is the recipe….

  1. Love the way you have served this. Like you we love rice and often cook it into some sort of fried rice . Adding coriander, peas and spices is a great idea. Lots of fresh flavours.

  2. Loved the beautiful images & this rice variety is my favourite too. We in fact grind it to a paste and add like a spinach puree which makes the rice green in colour too. Loved this version too. Great share!

  3. That is a good recipe to use leftover rice. I use the coriander chutney method to make this rice. But I agree to make it pleasing for the kids, we need to alter the appearance of food.

  4. Coriander rice looking very colorful and very well cooked. Rice is such a versatile ingredient that add something and a new dish is ready to serve. Loved it.
