Jeera Rice

A recipe from my good friend Rajneet's kitchen. Recipe and photo courtesy Rajneet.

1. Wash and Soak 1 cup of basmati rice in 2 cups of water with salt for 20 mins.
2. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan and add 1 tsp of cumin seeds.
3. When they start to splutter add 1 cinnamon stick, 4-5 cloves and 1 bay leaf.
4. Then add the soaked rice with water and boil it on a high flame till the rice soaks almost all the water. (Rice is generally more than half cooked at this stage).
5. Now cover the pan and cook rice for  5 mins on low flame.
6. Remove the lid after around 10 mins and your jeera rice is ready to be served with any gravy you like.
