At our house, the cooking never stops. And truly, that's a remarkable thing because I wouldn't have been able to get you all these quick recipes. Well, some of them maybe aren't that quick to prepare, but they are tasty so I thought I'd still write about it. This one's called "Jeera Rice / Cumin Rice"

Jeera / Cumin Rice
  • 2 cups Rice
  • 5 cups Water
  • 2 tsp Jeera / Cumin
  • 2 tsp Oil
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Salt as required
  • 1 tsp Turmeric / Haldi powder
  • 1 Maggi Chicken / Vegetable cube

Cooking Time: 45 minutes

  1. Wash the rice. 
  2. Heat oil in a vessel / kadai, add the jeera / cumin seeds and allow it to fry for 2 - 3 minutes.
  3. Add the washed rice, lemon juice and the maggi cube. 
  4. Add the water to the vessel. Note - For every cup of rice, you take 3 cups of water.
  5. Mix well and check if salt is required since the cube contains a certain amount of salt.
  6. Add Turmeric / Haldi.
  7. Allow it to boil. Once it starts boiling, bring the flame to sim for 10 minutes.
  8. Switch off the gas, place a lid over the vessel and allow it to set for 30 minutes. Note - Do not open the lid until the 30 minutes is completed.
  9. Once the 30 minutes are over, stir the contents well and serve immediately.
This is a dish to be had by itself or you can even combine it with yoghurt. The combination's fantastic is what I've heard.
