    Serves one person
    Total Preparation Time - 20 minutes
    1. Basmati rice - 1/2 cup 
    2. Turmeric power - 1/4 teaspoon 
    3. Ginger - one small 1/4 inch piece 
    4. Cumin seeds - 1/4 teaspoon 
    5. Peppercorns - 1/2 teaspoon 
    6. Salt - As per taste 
    7. Ghee - 1.5 tablespoons 


    • Wash rice twice in water and soak in fresh water for about 10 to 15 minutes. 
    • Place a pan on flame and pour ghee into the pan. After it heats up add cumin seeds, pepper corn, crushed ginger piece, turmeric powder, salt and saute for a few seconds. Do not let the spices burn. 
    • Add basmati rice and gently stir. 
    • Then pour 1.5 cups of water and mix gently. 
    • Cover with a lid and cook on a low flame for 5 to 7 minutes or until the rice gets cooked and water content completely reduces. Then remove from flame and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. 
    • Serve hot with some spicy curries or simply with papads. 

    TIP 1 : Instead of peppercorns you can use 1/4 tsp of chopped green chillies also. It will give a different flavor. 

    TIP 2: You can prepare the same with normal rice too, but basmati rice gives a nice flavor.
