Jeera Rice is most commonly made flavored rice from the north india cuisine. I prefer basmati rice to make it. Rice cooked with jeera(cumin) and some mild spices. It is served with veg and non veg gravy side dishes like paneer butter masala, veg kurma paneer, palak paneer, arhar daal, navratna corma, paneer tikka masala or even with daal fry.

Recipie of jeera rice
  1. Soak the basmati rice for 30 minutes and rinse the rice till the water runs clean. drain off the water and keep aside.
  2. In a large non stick pan add a tbsp of ghee. Also add cumin seeds and bay leaf. saute for a minute till they begin to splutter.
  3. Now add the soaked basmati rice.
  4. Saute on medium flame for a minute. Saute it gently so that you do not break rice.
  5. Add 2 cups of water and salt to taste. Always maintain the proportion of 1:2 (rice : water). Close the lid and allow to cook on low flame for 20 minutes.
  6. After 20 minutes, gently fluff the rice with a fork.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve jeera rice hot with dal fry, or dal tadka, paneer butter masala, daal makhani.
