    3(Sh)Y - add a couple of bay leaves and cinnamon also ...

    I do it similar to this , but I add the keerai and and other stuff to rice and then cook it in the electric cooker... it will be faster and spinach will be well cooked too ....

    If you boil the rice with some veggie broth, it will taste even better.. You can get veggie broth from stores.
