Jeera Rice

Rice cooker comes really handy when you dont have time to cook or not in a mood to cook or should i say planning dinner for friends comeover.

I made this jeera rice with dal, Aloo paratha and mutter paneer when some friends came here last weekend.This is quite simple and healthy and easy one.

Basmati Rice : 1 cup(Soak the rice in water for 30 mins)
Jeera : 2tsp
Cinnamon : 1'inch piece
Cloves : 2
Bay leaves :2
Green Chilli :1
Pepper : 1tsp
Salt :as needed

In a skillet,add 1tsp of ghee and oil,add all the spices and fry for a minute.
Drain and add the basmati rice and fry till the rice sticks to the bottom.
Transfer to rice cooker with 2 cups of water and salt.
Cook till nice and fluffy.
Garnish with Coriander Leaves.

Serve with simple tadka dal and its a fullfilling meal.Enjoy!!
