Dill Potato Rice
Posted by Annita on January 17, 2007
Recently I bought my first bunch of dill,and started using it in almost everything.I came to know about Dill from my dear fellow bloggers only,thanks to Asha, Anita, Nabeela, Alison, Mathuli, Gini, Indira and Shilpa for introducing me to such a lovely herb.Both its leaves and seeds can be used for cooking.Dill leaves has a very strong, crispy and grassy flavour and can be paired with any salads,seafood dishes,egg dishes,rice dishes,dal dishes almost in everything.I haven’t seen Dill in India,but i’ve read somewhere that it is now available in India too.
I’ve started my Dill experiments, with this Dill-Potato Rice,and we all really loved it.
Dill Potato Rice served with tomato chutney
Here’s what I did..

Cinnamon – 1 stick
Cloves – 3
Cardamom – 2
Onion chopped – 1
Potatoes chopped – 1
Dill chopped finely – 1/2 bunch
Tomatoes chopped – 1/2

Boil potatoes till it is soft and tender.You can do this in microwave too,just put potatoes and 1 tsp water in a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 3-4 mts.Drain and keep it aside.
