DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the rice in several changes of water, leave to soak in water for 20 minutes.
  • Drain the rice put it in a pan and add the 18 fl ozs of water, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 12-15 minutes (I place the rice in my wood stove oven to cook).
  • Remove the pan from the heat and leave aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the seeds, cook until they splutter.
  • Add onion, cinnamon (broken into pieces) and cardamom pods (split at one end to release flavour) Fry until the onion is slightly browned.
  • Add the Garam Masala and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the carrot - grated and the peas, cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Stir this mixture gently into the rice and keep warm - or serve straight away.
