DIRECTIONS

  • In a teapot bring 3 cups of water to the boil.
  • In a large saute pan, over medium heat dry roast the cumin powder first for 1 1/2 minutes then add the olive oil and rice; cooking for about 4-5 minutes until the rice is coated with the oil and cumin and glistens. (If using whole cumin seeds, dry roast, tranfer to coffee mill, pulverize then add back to pan.).
  • Add enough boiling water to cover the rice by 1 1/2 inches. Add the salt. Reduce heat to low and cook the rice uncovered until you see small "craters" on the surface and water has evaporated. This will take about 15-20 minutes.
  • Cover the pan tightly, remove from heat and let sit 20-25 minutes.
  • After 25 minutes, if any water remains, boil off the water (being careful not to burn), but do not stir the rice while the excess water evaporates.
  • Add more salt if needed.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
