Arroz Verde ( Mexican green rice)


4 cups rice,
1/2 cup spinach,
1/2 cup cilantro leaves,
2 cups of chicken stock,
1 cup of water
1 jalapeno chilli,
1 green tomato / red,
2 tbsp olive oil,
1 big chopped onion,
1 clove garlic- chopped and
salt to taste

Wash and soak the rice for 15-20 minutes. In a blender put the chopped spinach, cilantro leaves, tomato and jalapeno chilli and blend it with some chicken stock, to make a smooth paste.
In a pan, heat the oil, and add chopped onion and chopped garlic and fry for 5-7 mins. Now drain the water from the rice and add to the pan. Fry till the rice changes its colour. Now add the pureed mixture to the rice and mix well, add the remaining chicken stock and water, add salt and bring it to boil. Cook till 80-90% is done. Now reduce the heat and close the lid and let it get cooked for 5- 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve hot with any Mexican curry.
