Indian Rice with Cumin & Green Peas
I've been drooling over photos of rice concoctions with green peas for a couple weeks and finally got around to trying it out. It's pretty simple, especially with left over rice. This is totally something I would have adored as a kid. And it is a fancier side dish than plain rice.
Heat butter in a skillet until melted. Add spices/flavorings and stir to toast in the butter for 30-60 seconds: 1 tea cumin seeds bay leaf scant 1/2 tea salt minced garlic black peppercorns* whole cloves*
*you may need to remove or warn guests about the whole spices
Add 1-2 C cooked rice (I used white basmati) and a sprinkle of frozen green peas and stir to coat. Let it warm through then serve.
