Whenever we visit restaurants, generally order this with dal or simply a north Indian gravy and even Mughlai curry.

 

In a few restaurants, this dish is also referred to as Jeera Pulao. The word Pulao originates from the Persian term "pullo" which represents any rice that's cooked with herbs and spices along with other ingredients. Jeera Rice is an aromatic rice dish that's a fantastic accompaniment with any veg or non-veg side dish. Jeera rice also goes good with only raita (mixed or cucumber raita) too.

 

All the ingredients need to prepare Jeera rice are rice, vegetable oil, cumin seeds, green chilies, onions and coriander leaves. Jeera Rice is actually a culinary meal in northern India and it is a staple that's usually eaten every day. Jeera or cumin seeds undoubtedly are a strong aromatic spice used generously in Indian cuisine.

 

Jeera rice is an easy and warm delicious rice especially available in almost all of the dhabas. This dish is definitely a popular dhaba food. Basmati rice flavored with toasted cumin seeds in butter or ghee together with onions and chilies is a quick dish with simple spiced and aromatic natural rice full of flavor.
