Spinach with Curried Basmati Rice


This is something I made in an attempt to use up some leftover basmati rice and few random vegetables that were in the fridge. It turned out fantastic, my kids loved the rice ad keep asking for it ever since. Creamed spinach goes well with this rice but you can serve it with grilled vegetables or fresh salad.
