  • Remember to remove almost all the starch before cooking the rice.
  • Rinse the rice well before cooking. It helps to get rid of the extra starch and it will turn your rice non-sticky.
  • Before cooking, remember to soak the washed rice in water for at least half an hour.
  • Dry roast all the spices till it crackles. This has to be done before proceeding with the Jeera rice recipe.
  • Use a fork while mixing the rice instead of a spoon. As it will break the rice more as compared to a fork.
