  1. Jeera rice is a classic recipe , it’s one of the most simple rice served in restaurants and makes a perfect pair with numerous curries .
    The simple rice looks very nice with cumin and a little hint of green .

  2. Looks very pleasant and I know for sure that it is flavorful. I usually powder the spices as my kids don’t like when the whole spices appear on their plate 🙂
