DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, soak the rice in the water about 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan over med-high heat; add in the cumin seeds and black pepper; they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil.
  • Quickly add in the rice with the water it was soaking in; mix in the salt and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Decrease heat to the lowest setting, cover the pan (partially at first, until the foam subsides, then snugly), and cook until the rice is done, 10-15 minutes.
  • Do not stir the rice while it cooks.
  • Remove from heat and let the rice rest undisturbed about 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to a serving platter, garnish with cilantro, and serve.
