Coriander lends a delicate flavour to this rice. You can also use dill leaves along with coriander.

Cooking Time : 10 mins.
Preparation Time : 10 mins.

Serves 4.

1 1/2 cups long grained rice
1 1/2 cups chopped coriander
4 peppercorns
25 mm. (1″) piece cinnamon
4 cloves
4 green cardamoms
2 onions, sliced
2 tablespoons oil
salt to taste
For the garnish
1/4 cup onion slices, browned
1. Wash and soak the rice for about 10 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
2. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker and add the peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, green cardamom and onions and saute till the onions turn translucent.
3. Add the rice and saute for a few minutes.
4. Add 3 cups of hot water and salt and pressure cook till the rice is tender.
5. Remove from the fire and add the chopped coriander. Mix well using a fork so that the rice grains do not break.

The Coriander is added last so that it retains its colour.
Crushed peanuts can be added for a better taste.
