If plain White Rice is a little boring when you are having guests over for dinner, try this easy and colorful rice dish and put a little umph to your presentation!
Ingredients
  Basmati rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Carrots 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), diced
  Frozen green peas 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), washed
  Oil 2 Teaspoon
  Ghee 2 Teaspoon (Clarified Butter)
  Cinnamon 1 Small
  Cloves 4
  Green elaichi 1 (Cardamom)
  Black cumin 1 Teaspoon (Kala Jeera)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1 Rinse Rice with water until water runs clear .
2 In a bowl, add 2 cups water and soak the rice for 15 minutes.

MAKING
3 In a pot with a tight fitting lid, heat Oil and Ghee.
4 Add Cinnamon, Cloves, elaichi and kala jeera, allow them to sputter.
5 Add Carrots and Green Peas, mix well.
6 Gradually add in the rice, water and salt.
7 Bring to a boil, uncovered.
8 Cover the pot, reduce flame to low and let rice simmer for 15 minutes.
9 Remove the cover and stir gently to mix the vegetables and rice.
10 Turn off heat and replace cover until ready to eat.

SERVING
11 Serve hot.

TIP
Using baby carrots cuts your prep time.
Once the pot is covered, don’t keep opening the lid to check on the rice. It will be perfect in 15 minutes without any intervention.
Do all your prep work (chopping, etc) while the rice is soaking — it’s more efficient!

Indian Cumin Flavored Rice
Rice is a staple food in many countries including India and there are many ways of preparing rice. Tricolor jeera rice is a classic example jazzing up a plain rice dish that is appetizing as well as appealing to the eyes. One can find this dish on all special occasions in India. Its so full of flavors that I wouldn't mind having it as a main dish. One can pair it with spicy side dishes as well as plain simple dal.
