Jeera-rice-recipe
Jeera rice is not a complicated recipe to blog about, still , as I am busy and tied up with some works, thought of posting this simple rice. I make jeera pulao too, but jeera rice is nothing but rice tempered with jeera. We can make it exotic by topping with deep fried sliced onions. It is best for lunch boxes with a dal and a subzi. I am really sorry, some how missed the step wise pictures, though there were only two, I will very soon update it surely.

Jeera rice recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 30 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Basmati rice  1 cup 
Shah jeera  1 tblsp 
Ghee  2 tblsp 
Sliced onion (optional)  1 
Oil  For deep frying onion 
Salt  As needed 
Water  1 & 1/2 cup 

 

Method

  1. Soak rice for 1/2 hour and in a small pressure cooker/pressure pan, heat ghee and add the shah jeera, take care not to burn and fry for few seconds. Add the rice drained and fry for two minutes. Add 1 and 1/2 cups of water and bring to boil, add salt and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles in medium flame.

Notes

  • Soaking rice for long time ensures you giving soft cooked rice. So soak as much longer as possible.
  • Using shah jeera is recommended than the ordinary jeera.

Top with deep fried onions if you want to make it special or serve hot with any dal,papad and a subzi.
