Jeera Pulao/Cumin Pulao

Jeera Pulao

This is Alok's favorite Rice Recipe. It is easy and simple to make. It tastes delicious with a SImple Dal Tadka too. So my hubby's favorite combo Jeera Pulao and Dal Tadka.


Basmati Rice - 1 Cup (Washed and Soaked for 30 minutes in 1.5 Cups of Water)
Cumin Seeds - 1 Tablespoon
Onion -  (Big, Sliced)
Mint Leaves - 1 Handful
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt and Oil - As required


In a Pan, heat some oil, once the oil is ho, add the Cumin Seeds and immediately add the sliced onions. Once the onions are half done, add the Mint Leaves and the Ginger Garlic paste and saute till the Onion is cooked completely.

To this add the water in which the Rice was soaked. Once the water starts boiling add the Rice and required amount of Salt.

Stir just once and cover the pan and cook it till he rice is well done. It may take about 10-15 minutes.

Open and check while the rice is getting cooked and stir may be once or twice. Over-stirring the rice will break them.

Our Tasty , simple Jeera Pulao is ready to be served.
