1.5 tablespoon of Oil
2 cups long grain rice (Basmati)
3 Cardamons, 3 cloves and 1" Cinnamon( or use 1 teaspoon of "Garam
Masala" available in stores)
Salt to taste
Heat Oil on medium.
Add the cardamons, cloves and cinnamon and fry for a few minutes.
Add the sliced onion.
Brown the onion, do not burn it.
Add the chopped half tomato.
Wash the rice separately (Wash and drain the rice several times,
stirring rice with your fingers until the water no longer clouds up)
and add it to the vessel.
Throw in some water so the water is 1/2" above the rice in the dish.
If you are using a pressure cooker, one whistle will do.
Else, you will have to check it after about fifteen minutes. Stir
gently to avoid breaking the grains.
