Rice Cooked in Aromatic Broth Recipe

Preparation Instructions

Wash rice till water runs clear. Drain completely and add 5 cups of fresh water. Let rice soak 30 minutes. Pour into a strainer and leave for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile in a small kettle bring to a simmer; stock, onion, garlic, ginger, peppercorns, cardamom, cumin, coriander, fennel, cinnamon and bay leaves. Once simmering cover and let go for 30 minutes.
Through a towel strain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible. You should have 2 1/2 cups liquid, if not boil down until you do.
In a heavy bottomed pan heat the oil. When hot, add onions and cook, stirring till golden brown. Add rice and salt, sautee rice, being careful that heat isn't too high and causing the grains to break open. About 2-3 minutes. Add in flavoured stock, cover with sheet of foil and then lid, turn heat to very low and cook 25 minutes.
