Jeera Rice And Dal

Jeera Rice and Dal is a good combination dish. No much vegetables needed to prepare it and much easy dish we can prepare any time.

The dry fruits added to the rice gives more taste to it and healthy food and kids like them the most. The Jeera rice I prepared is onion and garlic free. But the dal is prepared using onion and garlic.
