Flavoured rice

In Seychelles rice is eaten everyday with that in mind I often spice up the rice to add a new dimension to it.For instruction on how to cook rice please check earlier posting.For this dish do the absorption method

Cumin and turmeric scented Rice

Serves 4.

300g/ 10 oz basmati

20 fl oz/1pt of water

1tsp of cumin seeds

1 onion peeled and chopped into small cubes

1tbsp of veg/sunflower oil

1tsp turmeric powder

Heat the oil until it is very hot add the cumin seeds, they are ready when they start to pop and the oil smells very aromatic add the onions and fry until golden brown add the turmeric and swirl.

Add the rice and coat in this very flavoursome oil add the water continue to cook as the instructions for the absorption method in earlier posts. Serve hot with any dish.
