Pudina Rice Recipe | Mint Rice | an easy and flavored rice-based recipe made with mint leaves. Traditional pulao is made with a combination of mint and coriander leaves, but I like this recipe with more pudhina leaves in it.

An ideal lunch box or tiffin box recipe which can be served as it is or with yogurt-based raita. Mint pulao is highly recommended during indigestion as it is a good source of antioxidants. Secondly, it is also served for a common cold or running nose problem. I grind a paste for this recipe. I hope you will like this recipe.
