Jeera Rice (Mum's style)

When anybody says Jeera Rice, a picture of white rice filled with Jeera/cumin seeds and the yummy taste of it crosses our mind.

The Jeera Rice I am going to show you is even more delicious than the usual one. This is another dish which i learnt from my mum. It is very much different than the usual rice dishes and is so much tastier. I have not modified the recipe and love it the way it is.

This dish brings back so many of my childhood memories and I feel like eating it right now because of the thought of it.
