    I always make this rice to go with Indian meals- dahl, or Awesome Sambhar. From the Kripalu cookbook.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients except salt (see below) in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a gentle simmer, cover and let cook 15-20 minutes. If you want to do it the really Indian way, stir in the salt partway through. Personally I never add the salt, but you could probably just add it at the start.
    2. 2
      Check after 15 minute and let it continue to cook till the water's gone. If it starts to stick on the bottom don't worry; take it off the heat.
    3. 3
      Let the rice sit, mostly covered, for 7-10 minutes. This time will allow the rice to firm a litle, and none will be stuck to the pot.

      This was so delicious and good. I loved it alot and was a nice change from the usual. I did add the salt, though.

      Something different from the usual plain basmati rice that I make. I would recommend using the salt. I also added in a chopped garlic clove at the beginning of cooking. We ate this with dahl. (lentils.)

      Nice side! I used ground cumin as dh prefers that to seeds in something like this. We found it did need salt and added accordingly. Thanks for a great rice side dish!
