Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine went with sleeping and shopping. You know what? Now a days I am starting to feel guilty if I dint post at least 1 recipe a day. I hope everyone is feeling the same. Yesterday I couldn't post and I felt as though I did something wrong :) Anyways today I have come up with the simplest yet a scrumptious recipe made with rice. Yes you got it right- Jeera rice. whenever I feel lazy or had to cook something very fast I go with this jeera rice recipe.


1 cup basmathi rice (Soaked for 30 to 45 mts)
1 tbsp butter or oil
1/4 bunch coriander leaves
1/2 cup onion
2 number gr chilli
1 tsp jeera (cumin)
1/4 bunch mint (optional)
1 pinch saffron color
1 to taste salt
2 cup water
few cashews


Heat the oil/ghee in a pan. Add cumin seeds, green chillies, cashews. Fry ill the cashews turn light brown.

Add onions and saute till they are light brown.

Now add coriander leaves and mint leaves. Add water and let it come to a boil.
