Ghee Almond Rice

Always a favourite, rice it is again. Said many a times, rice is the first choice, though admittedly it can be daunting sometimes what to pair it with and how to elevate plain white rice (tomato rice, ghee rice, nasi dagang, lemon ricerice congee, dhal/lentil rice, garlic coriander rice and nasi goreng tom yam). Now, here comes again another rice dish, effortlessly made in the rice cooker - scented with ghee, spices, coriander leaves and almonds for the crunchy crunch. 

2 cups white rice - wash and drain off excess water.
2 tbsp ghee
2 tbsp thin almond pieces
4 shallots - sliced thinly
Spices - 2 sticks of cinnamon, 4 cloves and 4 cardamom
2 sprigs of coriander leaves - sliced
Salt for taste
Heat ghee and when heated, fry almonds till brown and crunchy.  
Remove and keep aside.
Do the same to the shallots - fry, remove and keep aside. 
In the same ghee, fry spices for a minute
Add rice and stir to combine in - 2-3 minutes. 
Tip rice mixture into rice cooker.  
Pour the usual amount of water.
Season with salt. 
Stir and cook rice. 
Once rice is cooked, fluff up.  
Before serving, garnish with coriander leaves, fried almonds and shallots.
