Planning the Lunch Box was a little easy today as my Daughter had the menu planned:-)
Well she wanted Shahi paneer and some rice dish. I thought that Jeera rice would be perfect for that. Accompanied with some salad and Cake to take care of her sweet cravings ,this was a wholesome lunch......
Basmati rice 1 cup
Ghee 1 tbsp
Jeera 2-3 tsp
Green chillies 1
Bay leaf 1
Salt to taste
Wash the rice and soak it in water for 10 minutes. Drain and keep it aside
Slice the onion thinly
Make a slit lengthwise in the green chilli
Heat ghee a thick bottomed pan.Add cumin seeds, cardamom, clove and bay leaf and when it starts sizzling, add the sliced onions and fry well.
Now add the washed rice and pour 2 cups of water to this. Add salt. Mix well. Cook covered till done in a very low flame. Takes around 25-30 minutes.
Serve topped with fried onions and subji of your choice
