    1. 1
      Clean the rice thoroughly. Soak for at least 1/2 hour in 2 cups of the water.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the ginger and onions and fry on medium heat for a few minutes - just until it begins to brown.
    3. 3
      Slightly crush the cumin seed, cloves, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods and red chili. Don't pulverize, just crush enough to release flavor. Add the crushed spices to the onions. Fry for a few more minutes.
    4. 4
      Carefully pour the water off of the rice and into the cooking pan (the rice will be added later). Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of water to the pan. Bring this water/onion/spice mixture to a boil.
    5. 5
      Add the rice and salt to the boiling pot. Stir gently.
    6. 6
      Cover with a tight lid and allow the rice to cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and garnish with the chopped coriander leaves.
    7. 7
      Serve with curry - Thermomix Yogurt Chicken is excellent, or Kavita Singh's Tardka Daal or yogurt. I've posted the recipes for the chicken and daal on
