How to Make Fresh Ginger Rice

  • Wash the rice and boil it with little salt. When the rice is almost cooked, drain out the water. In a pot, heat the oil and cumin seeds till they splutter.
  • Add chopped green chillies and turmeric powder.
  • Add rice and mix well to get an even light yellow color.
  • To avoid the breaking of rice at this stage, use a fork to mix the rice well.
  • Using a lime squeezer or your hand, squeeze the juice of the grated ginger over the rice. Mix lightly.
  • Take the mashed ginger in a small piece of cloth and tie it nicely and place it on the rice and cover the pot.
  • Let the rice cook on low flame for about 7 to 10 mins.
  • While serving, remove the mashed ginger in cloth and then serve hot.
  • Tastes excellent with any raitha or kurma.
