Jeera Pulao | Jeera Rice | Easy Rice Variety

Jeera rice /pulao is an easy to make rice variety  which mainly has the flavours of jeera.Since it doesn't have any spiciness in it,a hot and spicy side dish is needed to accompany it.Here I have used both shahi and ordinary jeera for more aroma but you can use any of your choice.This can also be packed for lunch box.

Preparation time: 5 mins
cooking time: 15-20 mins
Serves: 2-3

  • Basmati rice- 1 cup
  • ghee- 1 tbsp
  • cashew-few
  • shahi jeera-1\2 tsp
  • jeera seeds- 1\2 tsp
  • cloves-2
  • cinnamon-a stick
  • cardamon-2
  • water-2 & 1\4 cup
  • salt- to taste

jeera pulao
How I did:

1.Wash and soak rice for 10 mins.Then drain and keep.

2.Heat ghee in a thick bottom pan, add in both jeera's ,cashew and all the whole spices.Wait for the all its aroma to release.

3.Then add water &  salt.Cover and wait for it to boil.When it starts to boil add the drained rice.Cover and cook till done.(In almost 15 mins it will be done, check it).

Serve it with any spicy Veg or non-veg curries.


1.If using cooker cook for 3-4 whistle.( I mostly don't pressure cook any pulao variety).
