Quick Jeera Rice

"Jeera Rice"
Jeera Rice as the name suggests is an easy and very simple preparation of rice flavored with Jeera or Cumin. The recipe which I am about to share is prepared with pre cooked rice, it can also be made with left over rice..

A flavorful preparation of rice which goes well with most Dal's and Indian gravy dishes. Its a no onion no garlic recipe and served it along with kache kele ka kofta.


Rice, cooked - 2 cups
Jeera / Cumin Seeds - 2 teaspoon
Green chilies, finely chopped - 2 teaspoon
Green coriander, finely chopped - 2 tablespoon
Garam masala powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee / Oil - 2 tablespoon
Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
Salt to taste


Heat ghee or oil in a kadhai or frying pan. Add jeera, once the jeera cracks add chopped green chilies and fry for a minute.

Add the cooked rice and mix well, add chopped coriander and garam masala powder, sugar (optional) and salt, Mix well and fry for 2- 3minutes.

Serve hot along with dal makhanisabut masoor ki dalmutter paneerkache kele ka koftamurgh massaledarjhatpat chicken korma or any vegetarian or non vegetarian dish.


I have made this with leftover, regular short grain rice, you could always use Basmati for preparing this.
Though its quite flavorful in itself but I have added green chilies and  Garam masala powder to make it more aromatic and it can also be had on its own without any gravy or dal. 
Adding sugar balances the taste but its optional, if you don't like then jut skip it.
