Dill has been used since ancient times. Today, it is used in salads, to make pickles, in soups, and other dishes. It's a great way to add extra flavour to a dish without drastically increasing the calorie or fat content of a meal. Even though most people only use dill as a flavour enhancer in their dishes, there are actually many other reasons why dill should be eaten.

Recipe For Dill Rice


  • Cooked rice (left over rice can be used) - 1 cup
  • Dill leaves (chopped) - 1/2 cup
  • Green chilli - 1
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Turmeric (optional)
  • Salt - to taste


  1. Heat oil in a kadai and add the mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves.
  2. Add the slit green chilli and sauté for few seconds and then add the chopped dill leaves.
  3. Add the turmeric powder and salt required for the dill leaves.
  4. Sprinkle little water (3-4 tbsp), cover it and cook till the water dries up.
  5. Add the rice, salt and mix well. Dill rice is ready

Serving Suggestion

  • Serve the dill rice hot with plain curd or raita.
  • I am not suggesting pickle or papad since it is a diet meal.


  • You can make Dill Pulao or Dill Masala Bath by using the spices as per your choice.
