Drumstick Leaves Chutney Rice

Are you bored of the same routine stir fried greens or tempered greens, give a try to this delicious and healthy rice for a change, am damn sure you guys will definitely love this yummy rice..I prepared this healthy,quick,simple,easy breezy as well as delicious rice using drumstick leaves before a week once i entered to my kitchen after a long rest, actually i saw this interesting rice dish in a cookery show and got hooked immediately to the simplicity of this healthy rice, this rice tastes simply marvellous as well as quite an easy way to feed our picky eaters with greens..Thank god, we get fresh drumstick leaves in our Indian groceries here since a year anytime of the week, i never forget to buy these healthy greens whenever i go to Indian grocery, back home i usually clean and freeze them for later use, but this time instead of freezing i prepared this healthy rice  using those greens for our lunch..

We had this rice with hard boiled eggs and spicy potato fries for a lunch,needless to say we had a super filling lunch..You can carry easily this rice in your lunch box and definitely this greens rice suits prefectly to everyone..Sending this healthy rice to my own event Healthy Diet-Easy & Healthy Lunch guest hosted by Jaya of Spice and Curry & to Healthy Morsels - Pregnancy..


2cups Cooked Rice
2cups Drumstick leaves (cleaned & washed)

10nos Garlic cloves
