Jeera rice is a simple preparation of rice that has been flavoured with jeera or cumin seeds.
This versatile rice preparation can be eaten as an accompaniment with almost any Dals / Kadhis or Subzis / Curries . Jeera rice with plain curds and Pickles / Aachar or just topped with some ghee is my personal favourite.
Using shah-jeera in this recipe adds a lovely flavour and fragrance to the rice. Coriander imparts taste and a delightful green colour turning plain simple rice into a preparation to be relished.
- Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the onion slices on a medium flame till they are golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside for the garnish.
