Perfect Pilaf Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by angelina ballerina

I love this rice, I discovered the perfect way to cook Basmati rice in Vegetable Heaven and the spices to make it fragrant were from The Great Curries of India. This goes perfect with any indian meal and easily multiplies. I put four servings as in 4 side dish servings.

Oh this is a dish we make daily at home, my dad loves this! Sometimes, I like substituting the water with vegetable broth. Also, I do add a stick or two of cinnamon besides cloves. Wonderful and perfect as you said!
