Mise en place

  • Rinse the rice in a sieve under cold running water, stirring with your hands until the water runs clear.
  • Drain well


  1. Cook the rice in lots of boiling water until the rice is soft on the outside but still has a tiny bite to it. About 11 to 12 minutes
  2. Remove from the heat and drain in a sieve
  3. Meanwhile, add the oil and onions to a large pan and sauté until they just turn brown.
  4. Stir in the cumin seeds.
  5. Once they start to pop, stir in the rice.
  6. Add half a cup of boiling water, cover with a lid, placing a cloth between the pan and the lid being careful not to catch it alight!
  7. Simmer gently for a further 5 minutes then remove from the heat and let it stand for 7 minutes so all of the water is absorbed
