Tips :

  • You can cook the rice in pressure cooker too. For that soak the rice as told in step one. After that heat oil in pressure cooker, add cumin seeds. Once cumin seeds begin to crackle, add soaked rice. Use 1.5 times the water to Rice. Pressure cook for 2 whistles and leave it in pressure. Once pressure automatically reduces to zero, open the cooker lid, add butter and rice are ready.
