I guess I will start off today’s post with a small incident that happened over the past week… Azza and I were watching a movie on TV. During the ad break, I was busy staring at the necklaces displayed in a jewelry ad – you agree that they are really tempting, irrespective of whether you have the funds to buy them or no, or even if you can buy them, whether you would ever use them!!! Azza looked at my face…
I was so overwhelmed by her show of love. I just hugged her tight and assured her that ummi is perfectly fine without that gold chain. It only goes on to reinforce how big gifts children are from the Almighty… Alhamdulillah for my two gems!!! 🙂
Off to today’s recipe, nothing much fancy… but a rice that I love to make during my lazy Fridays, apart from the Neychoru. It just tastes awesome with any spicy non-veg curry… Looking at the way I make it…
Jeera Pulao ~ Cumin Rice
- 1 tbsp olive oil *
- 3 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 small onion sliced
- 1 tsp ginger
- 2 cups basmati rice washed and drained
- 3 1/4 cup hot water
- Salt to taste
- Heat oil in a large saucepan. Splutter the cumin seeds. Saute the onion and ginger till the raw smell is gone. Add the basmati rice and saute for 5 minutes till crisp. Add in the hot water. Adjust the salt. Allow it to boil on high flame and then reduce the flame. Allow it to cook on simmer with closed lid till done.
- Serve with any vegetarian or non-veg curry...
- * You can add ghee or butter or any other oil instead of olive oil, as per your wish...
