Keerai sadam recipe | spinach rice recipe – Easy and healthy spinach rice recipe, perfect for kids lunch boxes too. Keerai sadam recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

I have many moms who find it very difficult to feed healthy stuff for kids. Especially for the lunch box, kids don’t prefer veggies. We can make this type of variety rice recipe and make their lunch box healthy and interesting too.

Spinach is sauteed and pureed in this recipe, and then added to the cooked rice. A very simple recipe but quite tasty and healthy too. The vibrant green color of the keerai sadam is too attractive and tempting.

If you are thinking about what to pack for your kid’s lunch box, you should try this recipe. If you want to make it more healthy, you can add cooked millet instead of cooked rice. You can add some par boiled veggies like carrots and peas to make the rice colorful and healthy.
