Aromatic Cumin-spiced Rice

Recipe by Cariema Isaacs

Serves 4-6

2 Cups (500 ml) Basmati rice
2 Tbsp (30 ml) Coconut oil
4 Whole cloves
2 Green cardamom pods
2 Black cardamom pods
1 Cinnamon stick
2 Blades mace
2 Bay leaves
2 Tbsp (30 ml) Cumin seeds
1 Litre water
Salt, to taste

Wash and rinse the basmati rice with tepid water, until the water runs clear. Allow the rice to soak for about 5 minutes and then drain.
Heat the coconut oil in a medium-size saucepan on high heat and add the cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, mace, bay leaves and cumin seeds. Roast the spices until there are fragrant, continuously moving them around in the saucepan.
Add the rice, water and salt. Cook on high heat for 5–7 minutes, uncovered.
Switch off the heat, but leave the saucepan on the stove. Place the lid on the saucepan and allow the rice to cook further in its own steam for about 10 minutes.
