Spinach and wild rice pulao with cashewnuts

Hello Friends!!! Hope all of you had a great new year. I know I am having one for I am in Namma Bengaluru. All these days I have been spending my time and energy on my baby sister's wedding. We have been having a whale of a time, shopping, planning the menu, arguing etc, etc. These days I am feeling like I am constantly on the move either doing or planning something. Gosh!!! Just being with your loved ones can make even the coldest of winters seem warm ;)

As for this recipe, It was something that I had made a month back. It was a spontaneous and a thoughtless preparation. Despite all the thoughtlessness, it tasted just fabulous. Hence I thought of sharing the recipe with all of you today. This healthy rice is a quick fix recipe and goes great for the lunch box as well.
