Jeera Rice




Jeera rice is an easy, less spicy rice recipe. It is liked even by kids also. I like to prepare this dish frequently. It takes very less time to prepare also. The main ingredients in this are shahjeera and green chillies and of course rice.


Ingredients:

Basmati Rice-2 cups
Shahjeera-2tbsp
Cloves-3 or 4
Cinnamon-2 or 3 small pieces
Green chillies-4 or 5
Salt- to taste
Oil/Ghee-4tbsps
Bay leaf-1


Procedure:

Soak rice for one hour. Slit the green chillies.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan or pressure cooker. We can cook this in the electric rice cooker also.  Add shahjeera, cloves and cinnamon. When they started crackling add slit green chillies. Saute them for a minute and add soaked rice to it. Fry it for a minute, add water to it. 
For one cup of rice add only one and a half cup of water. So we can add accordingly. 
Once the water start boiling, add salt and cover it with lid. Simmer the stove for about ten minutes. In the very low flame cook for ten more minutes or till the rice done. Serve hot with bagara tomato. If using pressure cooker cook for three whistles.
If we use electric rice cooker just add rice and cover it after the water boiling.
