2 1/2 cups
salt to taste
I was taught how to make this rice by a Pakistani friend of mine. She used Basmati rice, whole cloves, and added frozen peas for color. It was the first time I had ever seen anyone fry raw rice! The aroma while the rice is cooking is fabulous - almost unbearable! She served it with okra that was stewed with tomatoes and we ate by scooping it up with warm pita bread using only our left hands. It was my first hands - on experience of authentic ethnic cooking, and I have since gotten 'the bug' and continue similar types of cooking adventures. I will always think of my friend when I prepare this rice - thank you Uzma!
The cumin is too strong for me...wouldnt make again.
Very easy and delicious rice, even without the cumin seeds (I used ground instead). Very fragrant. Next time I will try basmati rice for a completely authentic touch.
Very nice and simple.
This rice was incredible!!! I absolutely loved it. I made it with brown rice and 3 c. of water. It had the best taste.
I enjoyed this recipe, served it this evening with the Beer and Spinach curry off this site. I liked the final presentation with the onions served on top of the rice, rather than just mixed in. It is a little longer to prepare and cook than most rice dishes, but well worth it for a tasty change.
This rice went great with the Thai Curry Tofu (also on this site) very simple to make but a safe taste (my husband who doesn't like trying anything "too weird" even liked it) Would definately make again
Very very good! Lots of flavour and a welcome change to regular rice/fried rice. I used brown rice and doubled the recipe. I reduced the water to 4 cups instead as it takes forever to cook rice at this altitude and I have no problems with this ratio. Only thing I wished is for the recipe to say how much salt to include... I didn't know what the overall taste of this should be and I only used a scant 1/4 tsp kosher salt. I think I will use 1/2 tsp next time to soak the rice. Thank you for a wonderful recipe! I will definitely make this again!!
