Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thinly chop and sauté the onion in the vegetable oil. Add a bit of water if necessary to prevent burning.
  2. Mince garlic and add to the sautéed onions along with the rice. Fry mixture for a couple of minutes to ensure that the rice won’t get mushy later.
  3. Drain spinach and pour the reserved liquid in the pot. Run your knife through the drained spinach chopping the longer stems.
  4. Add chicken cubes, white pepper, paprika and lemon juice and water.
  5. Cook for 20 min on medium high heat or until the rice is tender.
  6. The soup will have a thicker consistency. You can add more water or chicken stock to adjust the thickness to your preferences.
