The first time I had this rice was at a friends wedding. I could not get over how fragrant the rice was and its taste. I asked for the recipe from his Mum and I had to emulate it.
The secret was using Ghee, which is clarified butter. I decided to use buerre noisette (caramelised butter) instead cause I like to infusions.
Naturally I made my own butter from double cream as shown below;
250g of Basmati Rice with a minimum age of 10yrs
30g of butter
3-4 pods of Balck Cardamom
1 Cinnamon stick
3-4 Green Chillies
3 Bay leaves
1 heaped tablespoonful of Cumin seeds
120 ml of water
20g of chopped Parsley to garnish
Salt to taste
Watch how to prepare this fragrant Cumin Rice also known as Jeera Rice below on my YouTube channel, ‘Ndudu by Fafa’;
