Ingredients

1 1/2 cups basmati rice

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 (2 inch) piece cinnamon stick

2 pods green cardamom

2 whole cloves

1 tablespoon cumin seed

1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

2 1/2 cups water

1 small onion, thinly sliced

Steps

1Place rice into a bowl with enough water to cover. Set aside to soak for 20 minutes.

2Heat the oil in a large pot or saucepan over medium heat. Add the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, cloves, and cumin seed. Cook and stir for about a minute, then add the onion to the pot. Saute the onion until a rich golden brown, about 10 minutes. Drain the water from the rice, and stir into the pot. Cook and stir the rice for a few minutes, until lightly toasted. Add salt and water to the pot, and bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until all of the water has been absorbed. Let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork before serving.
