  • 1 cup Long Grain Basmatic Rice
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin Seeds

  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Cooking Oil (Olive Oil, Avocado Oil or any other)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro (finely chopped)

Optional

Directions

Step 1
Cook the Basmati rice. See Recipe here.

Heat oil in medium sized non-stick pan on medium heat.
