Later was browsing through Nags blog found in that she is hosting Monthly Mingle Ravishing Rice Recipes with Meeta MM. So posting it today since 15th is last day for entry.
Rice - 2 cups ( I used normal Ponni Rice. Can use Basmati Rice too.)
Jeeragam(Jeera) - 3 tspns (Depending upon quantity of rice)
Spices - Laung, Pattai, Elakka, Krambu(Cloves, Cinammon, Cardamom, Black cardamom) - 2 nos each
Cashews - few
Cooking oil - 2 tspns
Ghee - 1 tspn
Cook rice and keep separately. Allow it to cool a bit. By mixing hot rice makes sticky sometimes.
In a thick bottom kadai, put oil, l/2 tspn ghee, spices, jeeragam and fry for 2 mins.
Now add rice, sprinkle salt and mix well.
Break cashews to small pieces and fry in ghee in a sauce pan. Garnish it to the Jeera Rice.
Jeera Rice is ready to serve. Enjoy this yummy rice with Dal Fry. Click here for my Dal Fry recipe.
