Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 3-in cinnamon stick, crushed gently into large pieces
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 4 cloves
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat coconut in large saucepan over high heat.
  2. Add crushed cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, and cloves. Stir until fragrant (careful, cardamom may pop), about 8 seconds.
  3. Lower heat to medium and add onion. Cook, stirring, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add rice and stir well, then add the water and the salt. Cover and bring to a boil, about 5 minutes.
  5. You know what they say about a watched pot? Don't believe that. You WANT to watch this pot. :D
  6. Once it reaches the boil, cover and lower heat to a simmer. Cook about 18 minutes or until water has been absorbed. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving. Pile high on a platter, fluff with a fork, and enjoy.
