Pilau Rice

Submitted by: ANIMAMIA


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 T oil
    2 crushed cardamon pods
    3/4 t cumin
    1/2 t coriander
    1 small chopped onion
    275ml basmati rice
    570ml stock
    1inch cinnamon stick
    1 bay leaf
    1 t salt


Directions

Serves 4-6

Add spices (crushed pods as well as seeds) to a warmed frying pan and turn the heat up high to dry roast them. This will take about 1 minute.
Add oil and onion and fry for about 3 minutes.
Add rice and turn the grains until nicely coated and glistening.
Add stock, cinnamon , bay leaf and salt and stir just once.
Put on lid (if you don't have a lid for your frying pan, I find tin foil works fine) and turn heat to lowest. Allow 15 minutes for white rice and 40 minutes for brown. Do not stir or lift lid during cooking time.
When rice is cooked, remove lid, turn off heat and place a clean tea cloth over the pan for 5-10 minutes. This will absorb steam and help keep the grains dry and seperate.
Fluff up before serving.
