      Nice, delicately flavoured side dish. I used brown basmati rice, and about 3 cups of water. (Perhaps that is supposed to read 3-4 cups, not 3/4 cup?) I did not reserve any of the onion for garnish, and I didn't have any peas or saffron either. (that's what you get for not checking your ingredients before you start!) Left all of the seasonings whole and removed them before serving, except for the peppercorns, which I smashed with a mortar & pestle. I had never cooked rice from scratch before this(go ahead, laugh!), but this recipe was easy and produced excellent results. Will be making this again. Thanks, tonkcats!

      Nicely flavored rice! I did not use the bay leaves (a personal preference). I used white rice and I ended up frying everything together (minus the water) until the rice was golden. I then added 3 1/2 cups of water and simmered it until done. Thanks for the great recipe!
