Spicy Zeera/Cumin Rice

My favorite way of making dhaba style Zeera rice. It's easy, simple, spicy and delicious!! Goes well with many dhaba style non-veg curries and dal fry.

  • Rice Cooked 2 cups
  • Oil 3-4 tbsp
  • Zeera/cumin 1 tbsp
  • Green chilies 4-5slit
  • Curry leaves 2-3 sprigs
  • Black pepper powder 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger-garlic paste 1 tbsp

  • Heat oil in a wide bottomed non-stick pan.
  • Add zeera, curry leaves, green chilies and let it splutter for 30 seconds.(do not burn the cumin)
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and stir fry for a min.
  • Add rice and pepper and little salt to taste.
  • Stir fry on medium-high heat for a minute and simmer down on low flame for 5 mins.
  • Serve hot with Kashmiri Yakhni
