      Love rice. I did pan fry the onions, bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon sticks, cumin seeds, peppercorns then added to a rice cooker along with rice and water. I did use almonds in place of the cashews. Made for Feb Sun and Spice. Thanks

      We loved this rice veeeery much, who came perfect with a curry.
      I was soo delicious that my DS reserved a portion to bring to school for lunch.

      It's a 5 star recipe that only need an addtion to the directions: final addition of cashew nuts!

      Thanks a lot for your recipe.
