Servings 2


  • Indian Basmati Rice - Aged 1 1/2 Cup
  • Salt 1 teaspoon
  • Black Cumin Seeds - Shah Jeera 1 teaspoon
  • Green coriander for garnishing


  • Wash the basmati rice nicely and thoroughly under the running tap water.
  • Put the rice, and add 2 cups of water and salt. Stir the rice occasionally so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Once the Rice seemed to be bit cooked, switch off the flame and drain out the excess water using a strainer. Pour cold water again to remove the extra starch from rice.
  • Spread the rice on a plate and let it cool down, doing this will make sure that each grain of rice is separated from each other and hence perfect for Jeera Rice.
  • Take another pan, put Pure ghee or any vegetable oil and let it heat up. Add Black Cumin seeds (Shah jeera ) and let it splutter for few seconds.
  • Add rice and stir gently with the spatula. Do not cover the rice, let it simmer for few more seconds and switch off the flame.
  • Garnish with Coriander. Serve this with Boondi Raita or plain curd.
