Take the mixture in a pan, add water, salt and pepper as per required consistency and taste For rice - 1. Add 2 tbsp ghee to pan, add jeera and washed rice and cook for 2-3 mins. Add 4-5 cups water and let the rice cook till water dries off and rice is nice and fluffy. Close the pan halfway with a lid to get evenly cooked and separate basmati rice and at the end reduce the flame and close the lid until properly cooked. Your rice is cooked!
