DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the rice in luke warm water, drain completely and let it sit.
  • Heat the ghee or oil on medium heat, add the bay leaves and cumin seeds and saute for a minute.
  • Add the rice and saute for a few minutes.
  • Now add the hot water and the salt. Boil until almost all the water has evaporated.
  • Cover and reduce heat to low and cook for another 10 minutes or so - stir often and make sure that it doesn't start to stick to bottom of saucepan.
  • When there is a tiny amount of extra water left in the rice, remove from heat and let the rice sit for a minute. The extra should evaporate as the rice cools a bit.
  • Serve! If you would like, add a dollop of butter to the top.
