Ingredients

  • 2 tbs oil
  • 3-4 cracked cardamom pods
  • 2-3 cloves
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 onion, finely sliced

Method

Heat the oil and add the cloves and cardamom. Fry until the cloves swell, add the cumin seeds and cook for a few seconds. Add the onion and cook until pale and soft. Blend in the turmeric.
Stir this mix into the rice and pour over the water or stock, stir well and cook for 3 minutes on full power. Remove, stir well and check the seasoning. Cook on full power for a further three minutes. Remove and stir gently. If there is water or the rice is too wet, cook for a further minute.
