Jeera Rice

This is almost same as ghee rice but the flavor of jeera is more in this.My kids need different types of rice and this doesn’t have many ingredients and very easy to make too.My hubby too likes this rice.When I made this rice first time he asked me what happened the jeera bottle fell from your hand to the rice………I told this is jeera rice but when he tasted it he liked it.After that he asked me to make it again.

1 Large onion
7 Cloves
7 Pods cardamom
3 Sticks cinnamon
3 Bay leaves

1.Soak the rice for 1 hr.Drain the rice after 1 hr.
2.In a pan add oil put the clove,cardamom,cinnamon sticks,bayleaves and jeera.
3.When they start spluttering add cashewnuts and chopped onions and salt.
