herb rice recipe – a quick fix meal is what i cook these days and this recipe of herb rice is one of those.


its not an indian recipe. its again an european style recipe where i have used the vegetables i had i.e carrots and baby potatoes and fresh herbs – dill, basil, parsley.

i always experiment with different herbs in my cooking and touch wood have always come out with good results. i suggest the readers of this recipe to experiment with different herbs whilst cooking any rice, pasta or salad recipes. for this recipe too you could come up with your own choice of herbs. its better to use fresh herbs than dry herbs. but if you do not have fresh herbs than you could make the recipe with dry herbs.

you could either cook rice or use leftover rice for this recipe. you could also add your own combination of vegetables like mushrooms, broccoli, green beans, cauliflower, cabbage etc.

the herb rice recipe is simple and not at all spicy. to make it spicy you could add a dash of paprika or tobasco sauce.

  1. Hi Dassana,
    Can you post some pasta recipes?i have never tried making them at home.

    • what a coincidence ashwini. generally since no one likes pasta at home, i have stopped making pasta. but a couple of days back i got a packet of organic whole wheat pasta from fabindia. so will make a pasta recipe soon. but there is one pasta post already on the blog and you might like to have a look at it. here is the link: https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/penne-with-tomato-mushroom-and-olives/
