Recipe

A fantastic rice dish; eat with my Chicken Masala (posted separately) or whatever takes your fancy. A lot of spices and herbs to assemble but the cooking is very easy.

Directions

Wash rice in cold water and leave to drain well Heat the oil in a saucepan with a good fitting lid and fry the onion until soft & well browned Add cumin seeds & mustard seeds and cook for 1 minute - they should pop Add salt, pepper, ground cumin, coriander and turmeric and stir for 1 minute Add rice and stir to coat in the spices Add the bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamom & cloves Add 600ml boiling water stir to loosen anything that has stuck to the bottom of the saucepan and reduce heat to bare simmer Seal pot very well with a double layer of foil and then the lid Cook very gently for 15 minutes – don’t peek! Loosen grains with a fork; don't use a spoon as it will crush the rice. Cover and rest for 5 minutes
