Jeera Rice / Jeera Pulao


I am a big fan of different types of 'pulao'. One of my favorite pulao is 'Jeera Rice' because of it's saltiness and spicyness. It goes very well with many types of veg and non veg curry. The recipe is very simple and easy. You can also give 'jeera rice' in any adult's lunch box with dry curry, every combo will become great. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turns out.
