Spiced Basmati Rice

This is a spiced basmati rice that Neha served with her saag. It was very aromatic and made the perfect accompaniment to her dish.

Ingredients:
1 cup rice (soaked in water)
2 bay leaves
3 cloves
5 whole peppercorns
1 red onion (sliced)
1 tomato chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas
pinch of salt

1. Heat oil and fry bay leaves, peppercorns and cloves.
2. Then add the onion and reduce heat to low. Cook until onion is well-browned and softened.
3. Add chopped tomato and cook
4. When tomato is half cooked, add the rice (drained) with a pinch of salt and frozen peas.
5. Cook the rice slightly before adding water- add 1/2 cups of water gradually until the rice is fully cooked.
