Jeera Rice/Cumin Rice

Jeera Rice. Cumin Rice. Meaning? Rice cooked with jeera, aka cumin seeds. Simply as that. More importantly, cooked in the rice cooker.  Jeera Rice. My-my. The scent of jeera and that tiny bit of spiciness from chillies in fluffy rice is such a rice pleasure.

2 cups rice (wash and drain)
2 red chillies (cut into 4 pieces)
1 medium size onion (slice thinly)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tsbp oil
3 cups water
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute onion, add chillies and cumin seeds. Stir for a minute.
Tip into rice cooker, add washed rice and season with salt.
Stir and let it cook, after which fluff up.
