25 CUMIN RICE

Jeera(Cumin) Rice / Pulao



I love the taste - flavor of cumin and try to add it in most of my dishes especially when tempering. So naturally I love this aromatic rice which is full of cumin. Is so simple and easy to prepare that even when tryint it out for the first time comes out perfect. Best when served with any spicy dish/gravy.


Basmati Rice - 2 cup
Onion - 1 sliced thin
Green chillies - 4 or 5 slit long
Ginger garlic paste - 3/4 tbsp
Salt as needed
Butter/oil - 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Clove - 2
Cinnamon - 1
Bay leaf - 1

Wash rice and drain water. Keep it aside for 20 minutes.


Heat oil/butter and when medium hot add in bay leaf, clove, cinnamon and cumin seeds. Wait for the seeds to crackle/splutter( do not let it to darken). Next add onion and fry till light brown. Then add in green chillies and ginger and garlic paste. Fry for a minute till raw smell leaves. Add rice and saute for a minute. Finally add salt and water( 3 1/2 - 4 cups ) of water and cook till done on stove top or transfer to a rice cooker or cook in the pressure pan for one whistle. Serve with any spicy gravy.

I love cumin too. I think I get depressed when my in-laws are visiting just because I can't use cumin. My FIL hates it. Very nice and simple rice dish.
