Masala Jeera Rice

This fragrant, flavorful rice is the perfect side to any dish! We used a standard Jeera Rice recipe and elevated it with our Mirch Masala spice blend.


Ingredients:

  • 1 c Basmati rice

  • 2 c water

  • 1tbs ghee or butter

  • 1 tbs cumin seeds

  • Chopped cilantro for garnish

  • Lime juice

  • 2tsp Mirch Masala

Method:

  • Rinse 1 cup basmati rice until water eventually runs clear

  • In a pan, heat 1tbs ghee/butter or oil and 1tbs cumin seeds

  • Carefully add in rice and 2 cups water, 2tsp Mirch Masala and salt to taste

  • Bring to a low boil and then turn heat down to low

  • Cover pot *almost completely* leaving a small vent

  • Cook on low until almost all the water has been absorbed (roughly 10 minutes)

  • Turn off heat and cover pot completely to allow rice time to finish steaming

  • Fluff rice with fork while adding in cilantro and lime juice
