Ghee Almond Rice

Rice - forever the first choice. Rice day in day out, we still won't be bored though I admit it can be daunting sometimes what to pair rice with. Also, plain rice always can be boring, so rice has been elevated in various ways (tomato rice, ghee rice, nasi dagang, lemon ricerice congee, dhal/lentil rice, garlic coriander rice and nasi goreng tom yam). Now, here again another rice dish, effortlessly made in the rice cooker - scented with ghee, spices and 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.
