                    One of the simplest flavorful rice recipes that can be made in minutes ,without much effort on a relaxed weekend or a big gathering. It can go along with most of the homemade Curries or Sambar or Rasam or anything that pleases you. Can be made in a regular rice cooker or over stove. But i prefer cooking it in a rice cooker as its a fool-proof method to get nice soft rice without having to worry about boiling or burning. 


Rice--------------------------------1 cup
Shah Jeera/Cumin seeds--------1 tbsp
Ghee/oil---------------------------2 tbsp
Onion------------------------------1 sliced finely
Coriander leaves-----------------chopped to garnish
Cashews---------------------------1 tbsp chopped coarsely(optional)
Cinnamon stick------------------1/2" stick


1.Heat ghee. Add Shah Jeera, cloves,cinnamon,cardamom and fry for few seconds without burning.

2. Add Cashews, fry till nice light brown then add sliced onions and fry for couple of minutes until soft with about 1/2 tsp salt.

3.Transfer this fry mixture, chopped coriander leaves into 10-15mins soaked rice and mix.

4.Cook in electric rice cooker with  1-1/2 to 2 cups of water depending on the rice variety used(basmati or long grain or sona masoori).
