I face a challenge everyday in giving lunch for my husband. He needs something that he can eat quickly between meetings. Rice is my main option. I try to make something which is easy to cook in the morning and easy enough to pack for lunch. So, today I made Jeera (cumin) Rice and chole. It is really easy to make and tastes amazing.


Oil: 1/2 tea spoon
Basmati rice: 1 cup
Jeera: 3 or 4 tea spoons
One medium size carrot diced
Peas – 1/2 cup
Salt – as required

Preparation: Wash the rice and keep it aside. Add oil to a pan and when it is hot, add jeera. When the jeera splutters, add the carrots and peas and fry for a minute. Add the rice and fry for another minute. Add 2 cups of water and salt as necessary and let it cook or add all the ingredients to a rice cooker and let it cook. Serve hot with any curry.
