Time surely flies!!This is the gist I saw in many posts around the blogosphere! Well, this year did go by like a breeze! About all that in my wrap up post for the yeat which will be up on 31st.
So for now,I am going to write for the Blogging Marathon #47, Week 2,Day 1, where we get to choose from a set of restaurant menus and cook different dishes from one of those.
I chose the menu card from Puranmal and the first dish is a very simple one.There are different ways to make this dish and here is my version.Jeera Pulao is usually served with a spicy gravy and I served mine with Babycorn-Tofu masala gravy.
Basmati rice- 1 cup,washed and soaked in water for 10 minutes
Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1 tablespoon
Butter- 1 tablespoon
Cinnamon-a small piece
Salt to taste
Roasted nuts,coriander leaves to garnish
Melt butter in a small pressure cooker.Add the cinnamon, cloves,bay leaf and cumin seeds.When the cumin crackles, add the drained rice and saute on low for a minute.Add 2 cups of water[or the quantity that you generally add to cook basmati rice] and bring to boil.Add salt, mix and pressure cook for 10 minutes/ till rice is cooked. Once the pressure releases, fluff up the rice with a fork.
Serve garnished with roasted nuts and coriander seeds....
