Jeera Rice !



A Simple and flavorful rice that goes well with any gravy dish and makes a delectable meal for a rainy day. Its so simple and quick with very minimum ingredents. I have used quite a bit of ingredients but you can neglect few of them if you really dont need them like the garlic, onions and whole spices. All that is mandatory is only rice water jeera salt and little oil. But our taste buds dont compromise to only these :)
