Jeera Rice(Pulao)

Ingredients :
1 cup basmati rice(long grain)
2 bay leaves
3 cloves
8 whole black pepper corns
1 black cardamom
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 cups water
1 tablespoon oil and salt to taste.

  1. Wash the rice and drain the water completely.
  2. Now soak the rice in drinking water for fifteen minutes.
  3. Take a pot and pour the oil and bring to heat. Once it’s hot add the cumin seeds, bay leaf, cardamom, cloves and black pepper. Sauté till the cumin turns golden brown.
  4. Add the rice and salt and mix well. Now pour the water and bring to boil. When the oil begins boiling simmer and cover with a lid and cook. Keep checking or keep the lid partially open. When the water is absorbed by the rice completely it will begin giving a nice smell.
  5. Remove from flame and serve hot.
