Jeera Rice

Jeera rice is a simple preparation of rice that has been flavored with Jeera or cumin seeds. This versatile rice preparation can be eaten as an accompaniment with almost any Dal or Indian Curries. So lets begin to learn with "Flavors of Sneha's Kitchen".

1 1/2 tbsp caraway seeds (Shahijeera) / Cumin seeds
2-3 slits green chilli
1 cup long grained Rice (Basmati)
Jeera Rice
Salt to taste
Cilantro for garnishing


  • Clean, wash and soak the rice for 10 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
  • Heat the ghee in a broad pan. Add the caraway/cumin seeds and let it crackle.
  • Add the slit green chilli and let it fry for few seconds.
  • Add the rice and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Add the hot water and let it come to a boil.
  • Add the salt cover with a lid and cook on low flame till the rice is done.
  • Serve hot and garnish with cilantro.
