Jeera Rice is a versatile rice dish. It  can be served for lunch, brunch or dinner. It pairs well  with a dal, gravy, any kind of  raita (yoghurt based salad) or  simply with papads and pickle. It is a comfort food that one can enjoy anytime.

Unlike pulav, this is less spicy and aromatic. I am wondering why I have not put this recipe on my blog until now!

Here is some good news:

My long awaited books are now available on all websites of amazon. One is “Breadbasket” and the other one is a comfort food titled, ” 30 Tasty Dal Recipes

Recipe Notes

  • Only ghee may be used, but I prefer to use a mixture of both. It is more tastier.
  • Adding of onions is optional.
  • I do not soak the rice in water. I wash it well, drain the water and keep it aside for ten minutes. This method works well for me.
