Jeera Rice



I'm not big fan of Jeera Rice before tasting it in one restaurant with the combination of Palak Panner.
Seriously that day Palak Paneer was really awesome. So i want to try the similar combination in home. Jeera rice can be made in a two different ways and its very simple to do. I followed this recipe from vahrehvah with slight change.





Basmathi Rice              1 cup

Cumin Seeds               1 tsp

Saffron strands            Few

Water                       2 cups

Salt to taste.


Soak the basmathi rice in water for 30 minutes before cooking. Soak saffron strands in a small amount of warm milk

Heat oil in a pan.Add cumin seeds,once sputter add 2 cups of water ,salt and bring the water to boil.

Add rice and cook up to 90% of water gets absorbed. Add saffron color

After that reduce the flame and cook util becomes dry.

Serve hot with any side dish.
