Jeera Rice/Cumin Rice

God, help me please. Life does get boring isn't it? You tell me please. Same daily routine, over and over again, the mundane life and style madness of ours. Traffic jam by far can cause boredom ruckus, but what choice do we have? Additionally, packed back to back with housework, family commitment, grocery buying and what not. Food too, believe me you, if you don't bother doing anything, will become boring to our tastebuds. No better for me as well, but I still can hand out suggestions. What about elevating plain rice to another level? This Jeera Rice/Cumin Rice? Red chillies, onion and cumin seeds, fried in oil and washed rice, tipped in rice cooker and water added. Rice cooker friendly Jeera Rice/Cumin Rice, ditch aside chilies for a kid friendly version, other than that, fluffy, mildly spicy and cumin scented rice will do well and good for pairing alongside many more dishes (Cashew Masala Chicken, Honey Chilli Chicken, Grilled Fish, Bengali Yogurt Fish Curry, Aloo Gobi, Mutton Keema, Vegetable Pickle, Assam Fish Curry, Crab Curry & Chilli Soy Fish). In fact, I vouch, it is a meal by itself. Take care beautiful people. I will be back soon.

2 cups rice (wash and drain)
2 red chillies (cut into 4 pieces)
1 medium size onion (sliced 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.
