Jeera Rice with Green Peas

Jeera rice is not a recipe to blog as it is one of the simplest and easiest recipe.But for all those who are like me, lazy at times to cook can prepare this in a jiffy and can enjoy with a simple dal fry or another indian
curry.I  have made slight variation to this jeera rice to suite my palate as i feel jeera rice is bland. Whenever i get up late in the mornings i often do this jeera rice with dal fry as this is a very simple and easy lunch box recipe.
