Recipes Tips

If you want to elevate the flavor of this herb rice, you can add some chopped onion, garlic, and ginger to the pot before adding the rice. You can also add some peas, carrots, or bell peppers to make it even more colorful and nutritious.

Make sure to use a tight-fitting lid when cooking the rice to prevent the steam from escaping. This will ensure that the rice is cooked evenly and perfectly.

If you want to make this dish vegan, you can use vegetable broth instead of water. You can also use coconut oil instead of olive oil for a tropical twist.

This herb rice pairs well with any Indian curry or grilled meat. It's also delicious on its own as a light and healthy meal. Enjoy!
