Hi Friends,Today i have prepared Jeera rice along with chicken kurma for lunch.It went delicious n we finished the rice with in few mints.It consumes only few mints and ingredients required are also very few..i.e. basmatic rice,green chillies,jeera,fried onions,coriander leaves and few saffron strings.

Basmatic rice-2cups
Saffron strings a few
Chopped Green chillies-2nos.
Fried Onions-2tbsp(store brought)
Chopped Coriander leaves-2tbsp
Salt to taste


Wash n soak rice for 15mints in water.

Once 15mints is done,drain the rice from the water.

Heat a Bottomed pan with ghee,add jeera.When it splutters add chopped green chillies along with chopped coriander leaves and fry for few mints.

Add 3cups add 3cups of water along with required salt and allow it boil..then add drained rice and mix slowly so that rice will not break.cook with closed lid in medium flame.

Once rice is almost done add fried onions and saffron water on the top and again cook with closed lid for 5mints on slim flame.

Remove from the flame and transfer into a serving bowl.

Enjoy delicious and mouthwatering Jeera rice.

I see your jeera rice is very moist. Most of the ones I have tasted are very dry. Nice.
