Jeera Rice Recipe, Zeera Pulao, How to Make Jeera Rice Recipe

Jeera RiceJeera Rice is one of the North Indian recipes. It is not only good in taste but it is equipped with bundles of nutrients and health benefits. For the people who are very health conscious, this recipe gonna be a perfect food.

It is one of the simple and easiest recipes one can make at home with leftover rice or cooked rice. This recipe goes well with carrot raita or ridge gourd raita recipes.

If you are making for someone special then I suggest you use a minimum 2 year old basmati rice as old rice is less sweet than the new one and will absorb the flavors or spices of our recipe. One can feel the aroma of Zeera Pulao.

If you are cooking in a pressure cooker, first saute all spices (if you add extra spices mentioned in tips below) and add rice to cook so that rice absorbs the flavor and we get non-sticky rice grains.
