Coriander Leaves Rice Recipe

I wanted to try this coriander rice recipe since long time. Fresh coriander leaves are good for health and  I make sure that I include this in our diet as frequent as possible. Mostly it would be either coriander chutney or coriander idly. But for a change tried this green variety rice and it was just awesome. Its very simple to make and tastes great with onion or cucumber raita. Adding peanuts and cashew nuts are optional and can be skipped if not preferred.
