I got so many request for posting some easy rice preparation..So I thought of trying new rice dishes...I love cumin seeds in anything..It has a lovely earthy flavour which I always adore.This is a plain,simple,easy,elegant rice dish that goes pretty well with any side dish.I served this with chicken manchurian(check here for recipe)The flavour for this dish comes from cumin seeds,cinnamon and cardamom..You could always fry a tsp of cumin in ghee and add in the last,this enhances the cumin flavour..So please try this dish and let me know what you think..
Basmati Rice-1 cup
Frozen peas-1 cup
Cumin seeds-2 tsp
Cinnamon-1 inch piece
Green chilli-2 chopped
Wash the rice in lots of water and soak it for 30 min.
In a pan add ghee and heat it up..Throw in cardamom,bay leaf,cumin seeds and mix well.
Add in carrot,green chilli and peas and mix well.Season with salt.
Add in drained rice and mix well.Now pour in water(for 1 cup rice,add 2 cups of water) and bring that to boil.
Reduce the flame to simmer and cover the pan with a plate and cook for 15 min.
Switch off the flame and serve with any side dish.
