This is another rice recipe which we love to eat. This is bit spicy but we can adjust the amount of spices according to our taste.
Here is the recipe.
Ingredients (For 2 portions)
2 cups of rice
1 onion sliced
2 cloves
1 cardamom
1 inch stick cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbspn curry powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
Butter or vegetable oil
Salt to taste
Wash rice & keep aside to drain water.
Heat 2 tbspn butter/oil in a pan, once it starts smoking; Add onion & sauté.
When the onions are tender, add cloves, cardamom & cinnamon.
Now add rice. Mix well
Allow to fry for about 5 minutes, but keep stirring.
Then add other spices & mix well.
Fry until rice start to pop out.
Then add correct amount of water & cook rice. Add salt, about 1tspn too.
In this stage, I normally transfer rice to the rice cooker .I use 1.5 cup of water for 1 cup of rice.
Once the rice is cooked, serve hot with any curry.
I used some Tandoori  style prawns to garnish.
