Mint-Coriander Rice | Easy Lunch Box Ideas

Mint coriander rice with step by step pictures.
Packing lunch box for kids is quite challenging. Mostly I make lemon rice, simple fried rice, beetroot rice or mix cooked rice with the stir fry I make. Recently when I make this mint-coriander rice my kids loved them and hence decided to blog about it.
