Introduction

This dish is really easy, especially if you make it in the rice cooker and has a nice mildly curried flavour. If you don't have Garam Masala (indian allspice) some ground coriander also gives it a bit of a different kick.

Ingredients

    * 1.25 cups of Basmati rice uncooked
    * Extra virgin Olive Oil
    * Onions, raw, .5 small - chopped
    * Garlic, 1 clove - chopped fine
    * Tuna, Canned in Water, 1 can
    * ground cumin, .5 tsp
    * ground garam masala, .5 tsp
    * ground tumeric, .5 tsp
    * Salt, 1 dash
    * Peas, frozen, 1 cup

Directions

* Rinse out the basmati rice and let it stand as you prep the the other items
* In a mid-sized pot, heat the olive oil and put in the onions - cook till slightly brown
* Lower heat to a medium setting
* Put in the tuna, sprinkle in the cumin, garam masala, tumeric and salt.
* Sautee for 3 - 5 minutes, then add frozen peas and sautee for about 3 minutes more
* Add rice and only 2 cups of water. Most recipes cooking Basmati tell you the water/rice ratio should be 2:1, but my experience is that the rice comes out with a firmer, el dente consistency when you cook 1.75:1.
* Cover and bring to a boil and then immediately turn the heat down and cook on low or even simmer until the rice is cooked.
* Makes about 4-1 cup servings
* Simple, tasty and ready in a flash. Enjoy!
