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.

PrepTime:2 Min|Cooking Time:15 Min|Serves:3-4

Take a Pressure Cooker,heat oil add jeera seeds,chopped onions ,green chillies,GG paste and fry well.

Soak rice for 10 minutes,drain and keep aside.Add drained rice and fry well.

Add 21/2 Cup hot water ,fresh green peas,salt and cook for 1 whistle.

Add lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves .

Serve hot with any spicy kurma/curry or  Dal Fry.

My Notes:

  • Add Green peas after water starts to boil ,so that  green color of peas will be retained.
  • You can use Basmathi rice, to get long grain flavorful rice.
