Rice cooked along with cumin seeds and whole spices tempered in ghee – aromatic and flavourful.
Its versatility is unsung. There is not a dish that doesn’t taste great with a side of jeera rice. Cumin seeds and select whole spices sautéed in ghee add plenty of flavour to plain rice when cooked together. With a final garnish of fresh coriander leaves a plate of jeera rice served piping hot is the ideal form of comfort food. Have it with dal, sabzi, curry or just some yogurt and pickle – a jeera rice will always come through in satisfying your taste buds.
