Jeera Rice (Cumin Seed Rice)

My family favourite is variety rice. But surprisingly I never did Jeera rice so far. I wanted to make some simple yet different dishes for the lunch this weekend. I was looking for options. My criteria is simply less time at kitchen. What could fit better than Jeera Rice

Basmati Rice - 1 Cup
Cumin Seeds - 2 tablespoon
Cinnamon - 1 inch
Aniseed- 1
Cloves - 3-4
Cardamom- 3
Onion - 1 (sliced thinly)
Oil / butter - 2 teaspoon
Water - 1 1/2 cup

Wash and soak the basmati rice for 10 mins. Drain and fry in 1/2 teaspoon oil till all moisture gone.

Heat the Oil in a kada. When the oil is hot add Cinnamon, Cloves,aniseed, cardamom and fry till nice aroma comes
Add Cumin seeds and let it crackle. Add onion and fry till it is slight brown in color
Add rice and water and a pinch of salt. and cook the rice ( I have used rice cooker. You can pressure cook also.If using pressure cooker cook till 2-3 whistles in medium flame). Once rice is cooked pluff it. 
Serve hot with Paneer Butter Masala or Malai Kofta
