Spicy Indian Rice

Spicy Indian Rice


  • A Mugful Of American Long Grain Rice
  • 2 Onions, Sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • ½ Tsp Turmeric
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 6 Cardamom Pods
  • 1 Tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Large Handful Of Sultanas And Roasted Cashew Nuts


Coocking Method

First Of All Fry The Onions In The Sunflower Oil In A Large Frying Pan For 10-12 Minutes Until Golden.
After This Fill A Roomy Saucepan With Water, Bring To The Boil And Tip In A Heaped Teaspoon Of Salt – The Water Will Bubble Furiously. Now Add Turmeric And The Cinnamon Stick To The Water. Pour In The Rice, Stir Once And Return To The Boil, Then Turn The Heat Down A Little So That The Water Is Boiling Steadily, But Not Vigorously. And Boil Uncovered, Without Stirring (This Makes For Sticky Rice) For 10 Minutes. Then Lift Some Out With A Slotted Spoon And Nibble A Grain Or Two. If They’Re Too Crunchy, Cook For Another Minute And Taste Again. They Should Be Tender But With A Little Bite. Drain The Rice Into A Large Sieve And Rinse By Pouring Over A Kettle Of Very Hot Water
Then Stir The Crushed Seeds Of The Cardamom Pods Into The Onions With The Cumin Seeds And Fry Briefly.
Now Toss In A Large Handful Of Sultanas And Roasted Cashew Nuts, Then The Hot Drained Rice. This Is Great With Curry And Will Also Give An Exotic Edge To Grilled Meat Or Fish.
Your Tastey Spicy Indian Rice Is Eady.
