  1. If cooking in rice cooker , for 1 cup of rice add 2cups of water.
  2. If you want you can add fried onions once the rice is done. Though i love to add, my daughter Varsha hates to eat that. So i didn’t add.
  3. Never allow the cumin seeds to splutter as it will give a medicine smell to the rice.
  4. You can add slit green chilli to the rice while adding the whole spices.
  5. Instead of cumin seeds you can add shahi jeera too.
