Radhika Akka from Tickling plates pulled my attention more, once i saw this recipe in her space,there was a spark for this recipe and without delay i tried this flavourful bowl, should thank her a lotTongue, for this wonderful recipe. mint and coriander had lot an lot of health benefits, but most of us use these herbs only for flavour,  these improve digestion too.. coriander chutney, mint chutney, though i prepared some leftover will be there when ever a i prepare a fully herbed recipe, will get some left over, but this time no way, no one will keep leftover.. only in biryani or pulao these herbs are used that too in a minimal quantity, you can use half a bunch of herbs for this wonderful recipe. i twisted few steps to my taste, hope this post will help you guys to learn a simple and yummy rice bowl, See you in next post, Cook happy and Eat healthyTongue..

    • Adding Chopped mint leaves also optional, i didn’t do here, if you want you use
