Cumin Rice

This rice dish - one of the easiest and simplest way of adding flavour into plain white rice. Like I always say, use the rice cooker for a "sweat free" cooking style. Here we have rice, red chillies, onion and cumin seeds, fried in oil, tipped into the rice cooker and cooked with water. Amazing scent I have to say and yum too.

2 cup rice (washed)
2 red chillies (cut into 4 pieces)
1 medium size onion (sliced thinly)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tsbp oil
3 cups water
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute onion, add chillies and cumin seeds.
Tip into rice cooker with washed rice and season with salt.
Stir and let it cook, after which fluff up.
