Pepper-Jeera Rice/Milagu-Jeeraga Saadam

This is one of my favorite variety rice.  During this winter season, kids get sick very often and I made this rice yesterday for my girls.  They have seasonal cold/sore throat.  Luckily they liked it.  It takes just few minutes to make this rice, if you have cooked white rice.  Here goes the recipe.

Ingredients:-
  1. Cooked Rice -  2 cups
  2. Black whole pepper - 2 tsp
  3. Cumin - 1 1/2 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Melted Ghee - 2 tsp
Take a small pan, dry roast whole pepper and cumin till a nice aroma comes.  Let it cool. Grind it coarsely adding required amount of salt. In the mean time, spread the cooked rice in a wide plate and  add the melted ghee to it.  Now take the ground pepper/cumin/salt powder to the rice and mix it nicely without mashing the rice.  You should be able to see the rice grains separately.  Serve it hot with sutta appalam.  Since my daughter had sore throat, I did not give this rice to them with potato chips.
