Jeera Rice Recipe -- How to make Jeera Rice

Hi friends, Thank you for vising my blog. Hope you all like my recipes, please like, share and subscribe to my youtube channel too for the recipe videos. Today I will write how to make jeera rice recipe.
It's a very interesting, less spicy and simple recipe. I learned this one during my early marriage days. I tasted it the first time when my husband and I went out for a dinner after watching the movie #DilwaleDulhaniaLeJayenge, starred #Kajol and #SRK aka #ShaRuhKhan. I liked it very much and tried it at home everyone at home liked it and appreciated my effort too. That was how the inspiration for my cooking journey started too. Even now when I prepare this dish I feel nostalgic. Our neighbouring aunt used to serve it with #BagaraBaingan. So also I too prefer to serve it like that only. You can check it out here for other rice varities from my kitchen.
