Mint Rice / Pudina Rice

Puthina Rice comes to rescue, whenever i need to cook fast and with less human work. Its a Healthy One Pot Meal. Puthina / Mint is Good for Digestion so try preparing this Rice twice in a month. (weekly once is much appreciated). I usually prepare this with fresh Puthina / Mint Leaves bought from  my keera kaara amma. The Fragrance is enough to charge you, when you prepare with fresh leaves.
