Gooseberry Rice/Nellikkai Saadham

One pot meals makes our life easier and obviously one pot meals are favourite lunch. Whenever i feel bored or lazy to cook, i'll go immediately for easy breezy one pot meal. One among those one pot meal is this healthy,quick and delicious gooseberry rice. This rice is one of our favourite lunch and its takes hardly few minutes to get ready if you have already cooked rice. Grated gooseberries cooked along with tempered spices and cooked rice makes this healthy rice.

Gooseberries have loads of medicinal value and its recommanded to add them quite often in your diet, eventhough we dont get super fresh gooseberries as in India,i never failed to get them if i saw them in Indian groceries here. Recently i got to get them as much as fresh like India during my last visit to Indian grocery and i couldnt stop myself to making this quick and healthy rice with it.A vegan friendly lunch box rice to carry and enjoy the goodness of this healthy berries.Sending to Priya's event Healthy Diet - Healthy Lunch Box guest hosted by Sowmya.
