Green Rice

This is an easy way to make rice more exciting. Typically, Basmati rice would be the best, the aroma is unbeatable, but use whatever white rice is available.

1 cup Basmati rice
1 medium onion, chopped
12oz package frozen peas
4 cloves
1 small stick cinnamon
1 clove garlic(minced)
2 to 3 bay leaves
2 tablespoon oil

Heat oil in a deep pan and fry onions till slightly brown. Add cloves, cinnamon, bay leaves and garlic and stir. Add rice and stir for 2 to 3 minutes. The rice should be coated with the oil. Add 2 cups water and allow the pot to come to a boil.
Add peas.Stir, lower heat and simmer covered until the rice is cooked. Let it stand uncovered until extra water evaporates. Serve with Raita.
