Jeera rice is my favourite rice dish to make. I love the taste of cumin and the addition of peas adds to the health factor of this dish.
I used 1 cup of the the 24 mantra organic sonamasuri rice which I picked up from my local supermarket. This rice is supposedly gluten free.
I then chopped two onions
I heated two tbsp of ghee in a vessel and added two tsp of cumin seeds.
Allow the cumin seeds to splutter and then add the chopped onions.
After the onions turn translucent add the peas and saute for 5 mins.
Then add two cups of water( for 1 part rice add double the quantity of water)
Once this comes to a rolling boil, add the rice in and cover and cook on a medium flame. When holes appear in the rice put on low flame for two minutes.
Then turn the flame off ,keep covered with lid. I added a clothe over the lid with a weight on top to prevent the steam from escaping.
Let this sit for around ten minutes.
Your rice is ready. Enjoy with some yummy pickle!
