Spicy Rice – just like in India

Spicey rice

How to boil rice are probably as many ways as there are those who eat rice … Here it is not unusual to rinse the rice and you’d rather have a little more stickier rice. While in some countries it is unthinkable to not rinse it.  In this recipe, I have chosen to rinse it. But you can of course just as well to leave it alone.

Spicy Rice  just like in India
2 servings of basmati rice
3 cardamom pods
1 piece of cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
1 cloves
Water as it goes about 2 inches above the rice.
Put everything in a saucepan. Let it boil up properly. Then turn off the heat and do not lift the lid. Let it stand for 20-30 minutes. Since the water has been sucked in and it’s ready to eat.

    So nice to see Indian recipe here, I always cook rice with all these ingredients plus a little oil, but in a slight different way. Heat a spoon oil and add all spices(cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaf, cloves) stir for 30 secs, then add water and rice. This enhances the aroma of spices.

    Ibland kan man tröttna på vanligt ris. Prova att krydda det lite så kan det pigga upp de flesta rätter. =)
