      I've never prepared a jeery rice until now and I have to tell you that this was a mistake as your recipe is so perfect. The best way to find the recipe again is to take picture and write a review:
      I will do it again!
      Please write more recipes again, I tried many of your recipes and all are fantastic.

      This is one of those really versatile rice dishes that can accompany a wide variety of entrees... Indian, Mexican, beans, whatever. I used brown basmati rice and didn't have cardamoms so I subbed ground cardamom to taste. I love the cumin flavor; it blended surprisingly well with the cinnamon-clove seasoning. Thanks Charishma, this is a side dish I'll turn to often.
