I always use my Pampered Chef Micro Rice Cooker for plain rice and have done for a few years (ever since I got one). It always gives me “Uncle Ben’s” quality rice without having to pay the price for the rice! I was then given this recipe for Pilau Rice – it is so easy and so yummy and easily feeds 4 very hungry, 6 hungry or even 8 normal sized portions!!!
2 cups Basmati Rice
4 cups Water (boiling)
2 Knorr Stock Cubes
1 Onion chopped
70 ml veg oil
8 green cardamons
2 pieces cinnamon stick
Half teaspoon turmeric powder
Put the oil, chopped onions and all spices in the Rice Micro Cooker and cook on high for 3 minutes.
Add rice, water and stock cubes (melted in the water) and cook on high for 15 minutes.
