JEERA RICE -(MICRO WAVE AND STOVE TOP)

JEERA RICE
Jeera rice is prepared in minutes of time and no need of vegetables.It is even liked by children very much as it is less spicy food which can  be enjoyed by kith and kin..I prepared it in microwave in just a matter of half an hour.

  • Now add water and rice ,mix well and cook in micro high at 900 W for 10 minutes.Stir once in between,if u are doubtful whether it will get burnt.

  • After heating add jeera and fry for a while,then after wards add chopped onion,greenchilli slits,curry leaves and gingergarlic paste and saute.Then after the onion turned in to transparent,it takes more than 10 mins in low flame,add black pepper powder,and salt.After 2 mins add the cooked rice and mix well for a few seconds.Then switch off the stove.Serve hot.
  • Ideal with onion raitha.
