Chicken and spinach makes for a wonderful combination and today's recipe combines the flavors and taste of both in this delicious rice. Here I have used fried chicken for extra taste, but you can skip the frying part and use chicken as it is.


2 cups rice
150 gms boneless chicken cut into small pieces
10 spinach leaves cut into thin slices
2 tbsp oil
1 onion finely chopped
1 cardamom
1 cinnamon
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 ½ tsp salt
3 tomatoes deseeded and pureed
3 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
4 cups water
1 tbsp chicken 65 masala
Oil for frying


  • Take chicken pieces in a bowl, add chicken 65 masala and mix well. Allow it to marinate for 1 or 2 hours.
  • Then heat oil in a pan and deep fry the chicken pieces till golden brown in colour. Transfer to a plate and keep ready.
  • Now heat oil in a pressure cooker, add cardamom, cinnamon and onions and sauté till the onions turn golden.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and sauté till the raw smell goes.
  • Next add red chilli powder, salt, and sliced spinach leaves and mix well.
  • Add tomato puree and cook till oil starts separating.
  • Now add the fried chicken pieces, rice and coriander leaves and mix well.
  • Add water and close the lid of the pressure cooker.
  • Pressure cook for 3 whistles and serve hot.
