Pudina Rice Recipe | Quick Lunch Box Recipe | Variety Rice Recipe

My go-to recipe during weekdays is usually Pudina Rice. Tell me who does not like mint? Being Indians we usually have mint in the form of chutney's or dips. This flavored rice tastes , I usually pack lunch for my husband and this is one of them.

We pair the rice with either papads/ curd or simple pickle. I try to do variations to the dish by adding capsicum/ peas to it, which enhances the flavor.


Prep & cook time ~ 20 mins
Serves ~ 2
Recipe Source ~ Own


Fresh mint leaves -  1/4 bunch
Green chilli - 1-2 depending on spice tolerance
Small onions - 8-10 chopped/ 1 medium onion sliced
Capsicum/ green peas - handful
Rice/ Basmathi rice - 1 cup
Water - 2 cup
Bay leaf - 1
Cardamom - 1-2 pods
Jeera - 1/4 tsp

  • Boil the rice in a pressure cooker (follow your usual method), i had kept for 4 whistles and let it cool down
  • In a mixie blend the mint leaves, green chilli and onions into a fine paste.
  • In a hot pan add oil and put the whole spices once they release aroma add in the paste and the capsicum/peas and let it cook for 5 minutes
  • Once the mixture cools down combine it with the rice and mix well.
