  3. Add some of the cleaned and chopped spinach and saute till the spinach becomes a little tender but make sure its not completely cooked. You can cover and cook the spinach on low flame for 2 minutes. 
  4. Next, add the two cups of cooked rice to the wok and along with it add 1/2 tsp cumin powder, 1 tsp Curry Masala Powder, Salt to taste and saute for 2 minutes. Add more salt if required.
  5. Switch off the flame on the stove and sprinkle some remaining chopped spinach and stir in the rice mixture and cover the wok.
  6. Serve along with Raitha (An Indian side dish of yogurt containing chopped cucumber or other vegetables and spices) and fried black eyed beans.

Note: Make sure that you don't cook the spinach completely, it needs to be crunchy and hence sprinkling some spinach at the end helps give that taste.
