Salt - to taste ( I don't use any)
Heat ghee in a sauce pan, add onions and cook till beautiful golden brown. Drop the cashews, bay leaf and cook another 30 seconds till they are roasted. Stir in the rice and cook till it's puffed up. Pour the mixture in a rice cooker with 2 1/2 cups of water. Let cook.
