Jeera Rice

I am sure many people dont know about this simple yet yummy rice variety, coz i hadn't even heard about it before coming to Pune. So here goes my first recipe in the blog.

Boil the rice as usual. I use 1:1 ratio of rice and water to boil the rice. Let it cool down or we can also use leftover rice from the previous cooking. Heat the kadai (Pan). Add 2 tbs cooking oil, 1 tsp ghee (clarified butter). Add  Jeera (Cumin seeds), green chilli, fried onions and curry leaves (optional), salt and saute for few seconds. Add the rice and keep mixing the rice, so as to avoid sticking of rice to the pan. Do this till you find all the ingredients have mixed properly with the rice and also you can smell the favour now.

Can serve Jeera rice with dhal (boiled cereals), any gravy and also few like to have it with tomato ketup.
