DIRECTIONS

  • In a pot, heat up the oil on medium high heat.
  • Add the onion and cook till it softens, becomes translucent and releases its water. Do not brown or dry out.
  • Add cloves, bay leaf, cardamom, peppercorn and cumin.
  • Fry for about a minute or so.
  • Add turmeric powder, coriander powder and chilli powder. Stir and fry a bit. If it looks a little dry add a little bit of the chicken stock that you have aside.
  • Add the garlic and ginger paste, stir fry a minute or two.
  • Add the peas and chicken stock and let it warm up but not to a boil.
  • Add rice and salt to taste. Stir well. Increase heat to high. Let the rice come to a boil and let boil for 5 minutes.
  • Give a quick stir, cover with lid and turn heat down to medium and let cook for 15 minutes.
  • Turn the stove off. Do not uncover the rice or move it from the stove. Let it sit in its steam for 5-10 minutes as the stove cools down allowing the rice to become fluffy.
  • Serve hot!
