Broccoli Jeera Rice

          This is my first Blogging Marathon and for the first week of Blogging Marathon Edition # 13 I selected "Easy Lunch Box Recipes for Kids - Rice" .To me rice recipes are one of the easy and quick to do menus. So i am going to share very simple and easy lunch box rice recipes for all seven days. For the Day 1 i am here with Broccoli Jeera Rice. Broccoli is one of my kids' fav veg. Broccoli and Jeera sounds to be a wonderful combo, more than my kids i loved it. They complained that i added more pepper n it was bit spicy to them. That's not an issue u can adjust it by adding few drops of ghee and pack it. The recipe as follows:

Ingredients
  1. Cooked Rice    1 cup
  2. Broccoli  Florets   1/2 cup
  3. Garlic   2 cloves(finely chopped)
  4. Onion    1/2 (sliced thinly)
  5. Cumin seeds/Jeera    1/2 tsp
  6. Mustard seeds    1/4 tsp
  7. Pepper   to taste
  8. Salt    to taste
  9. Oil    1-2tsp
Method
  • Heat oil in pan, add mustard and cumin seeds wait till it pop and add finely chopped garlic and saute well.
  • Then add sliced onions and saute till it turns light brown.
  • And add broccoli florets and mix well and cook covered for 1-2 minutes.
  • After that add cooked rice, enough salt n pepper powder , combine everything well.
  • That's it...Quick Broccoli Jeera Rice is ready to pack.

Notes:
Use Freshly Cooked Basmati Rice for more flavor n taste.
You can also use white pepper powder n lastly garnish with cilantro/parsley.
