Jeera Rice

Hi all,

Good to be back here.. 
I have been a little busy with my son and his school.. I will try my best to post as frequently as I can.. I promise.. ๐Ÿ˜Šโค

Here is a simple one pot meal recipe.. It takes less than 15 mins to make this.. If you got up late and find out there are no veggies in the fridge and want to pack something quick for lunch this one is a good choice. 

Rice (I prefer raw rice over basmati rice) – 1 cup

Jeera- 1 tbsp 

Onion (Optional) – 1 big sliced

Peas – A handful (Optional)

Bay leaf – 2

Cloves – 4

Cardamom – 2

Cinnamon- 1 inch

Green chilly – 1

Salt as per taste

Ghee – 2 tbsp 

Water – 2 cups

Coriander leaves for garnishing

Take a heavy bottom cooker. Heat it. Add ghee.. Once it gets hot add Jeera, bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon stick and cardamom and sautรจ. Now add onions, green peas and green chilly and sautรจ till onions turn translucent. You can now get a nice aroma. 

Now add the rice and the required amount of water. Add salt and give it a good mix. Once the rice and water start boiling close the lid and cook for 2 whistles. Switch off the gas. 

Once the pressure subsides garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with channa masala or a simple dal fry for the sides..ย 

Doesn’t it sound simple.. Do try it and tell me how it tastes.. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
