    Jeera Rice Recipe Tips

    which add magic to your recipe!!!

    Tip 1

    By adding lemon, rice becomes non-sticky and each grain is separated from each other.

    Tip 2

    Rice should be treated very gently when it is cooked.

    Tip 3

    Rice should be washed well in water 4-5 times before cooking to remove starch.

    Tip 4

    While cooking jeera rice in a kadhai or pan, do not cover the pan fully.

    Tip 5

    Instead, cover it only half with a lid or plate. This will not let water ooze out of the pan.

    Tip 6

    If you don’t have the Basmati rice, you can use another better quality of rice as Basmati rice is not available everywhere.
