  • Cook the rice: In a pot, bring water to a boil. Drain the soaked rice and add it to the boiling water. Cook until the rice is just tender. Drain excess water and set the cooked rice aside.
  • Prepare the mint mixture: In a blender or food processor, blend the chopped mint leaves with a little water to form a smooth paste. Set aside.
  • Sauté aromatics: Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet or pan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Let them splutter for a few seconds. Then add thinly sliced onions, minced garlic, grated ginger, and slit green chilies. Sauté until the onions turn translucent.
  • Add mint paste: Add the mint paste to the skillet. Stir well to combine with the aromatics. Cook for a couple of minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Season: Sprinkle turmeric powder and salt to taste over the mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Add cooked rice: Add the cooked basmati rice to the skillet. Gently fold the rice into the mint mixture until well combined. Be careful not to break the rice grains.
  • Garnish and serve: Garnish the Pudina Rice with fresh cilantro leaves. Serve hot with lemon wedges on the side, if desired.
