Jeera Fried Rice With Peas

Simple and very easy, rice dish. A quick dinner, if you serve it with any kind of dal - a perfect combination of protein and carbs.

Here is all you need-:
Oil - 2 tsp
Rice- 1 cup
Water - 1 and 1/2 cups
Peas 1/2 cup
Onion - Chopped
Cumin Seeds - 1 tbsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Peppercorns - 2-3
Cloves - 2
Bay leaf- 1
Salt to taste.

Cook the rice with water. Add the salt and then cook rice. It's the right time to flavor the rice. Also add couple of peppercorns and a clove. You can pressure cook it or you can cook it in a pan with a lid on it.

Add oil into a pan. When oil gets hot, add Jeera (Cumin seeds). When they splutter, add asafoetida, cloves and peppercorns and bay leaf. Then add onion and saute for a couple of minutes. Then add thawed peas, mix well and add cooked rice, mix well. Cover for a minute. Add chopped cilantro.

This is my one more entry towards CWS Peas Event.
