Jeera rice

Jeera rice is such a delicate and delicious recipe. Its lightly spiced and packed with flavour, quite healthy and goes well with almost all the gravies. Usually on Saturday lunch menu, this is on the top list (as its not time consuming and easy and tasty... all in one, must say).This is a great recipe anytime, anywhere... may it be fine dining, or at home, parties, picnics or even lunch box. Here goes the recipe...

Basmati rice - 1 kg
Cumin seeds(jeera) - 1 tbsp
Onions large - 1 nos
green chillies - 4 nos
ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
veg stock cube - 1 nos
dalda - 4 tbsp
oil/ghee - 4 tbsp
salt for taste

Cook basmati rice in hot boiling water until its almost done( not fully cooked). Strain the water using a colander and keep the rice aside. In a non- stick stew pot add dalda, oil/ghee and add cumin seeds and fry till the aroma is released. Add onions, green chillies and ginger-garlic paste and fry. Now add veg stock cube and garam masala, and stir for a minute. Add rice into this and toss well. Check for salt, add more if required. When all the rice is well coated with this mixture, its ready. Serve hot.

May exclude veg stock cubes. This goes well with rajma masala, paneer tikka masala, butter chicken masala etc.( I would say all the gravies).
