Fragrant rice with aromatic spices

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Fragrant or basmati rice 375 mL
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil 15 mL
2 Whole cardamom pods 2
1 Stick cinnamon 1; (2"/5cm)
3 Whole cloves 3
1 small Onion; peeled and thinly

1 large Carrot; diced 1
2 cups Chicken stock 500 mL

Rinse rice well in several changes of water. Cover with cold water and allow rice to soak while preparing other ingredients. Drain well.

Heat oil in a medium sized saucepan. Add cardamom, cinnamon and cloves.

Stir a few times and add onions. Cook onions until browned. Add carrots and combine well.

Add drained rice and cook until rice turns slightly translucent - about 2 minutes. Add chicken stock. Add some salt if stock is unsalted. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook gently 15 minutes.

Quickly add peas and cover again. Cook 5 minutes longer. Stir gently to combine.
