Jeera Rice

Print Friendly and PDF
My husband is a big fan of this rice.If i ask his preference for dinner or lunch on weekend's,his answer is simply Jeera rice.He can simply have this with raitha.This is so easy to prepare which requires very few ingredients and tastes so wonderful.
1 cup Regular Rice or Basmati Rice
2 medium onions thinly sliced
10-12 cashewnuts broken into two
2 tbsp jeera
3-4 cloves
1" cinnamon
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp oil

Caramelize the onions in butter and oil(adding oil to butter while frying will avoid from getting burnt) until golden colour and crisp(add sugar while frying the onions which makes the process faster and easier) and remove it aside.In the same pan fry cashews and keep it aside.wash and soak the rice for 10-15 mins.In a pressure cooker,heat oil/butter fry cloves,cinnamon,bay leaf,rice and fry for a couple of minutes add 2 cups of water and salt and cook for 2-3 whistles.In a pan heat butter,crackle jeera and switch off the flame,add cooked rice,fried onions,cashews and stir gently.
Serve it hot with Rajma curry and raitha.

  • Avoid butter in the recipe for a Vegan version and fry onions in oil.
