Drain the rice thoroughly and set aside. Melt the ghee or butter in a heavy-based, non-stick saucepan over a medium heat. Split the tops of the cardamom pods to release the flavour, then when the fat is hot add the cumin, cardamom and cinnamon and stir-fry for 15-20 seconds. Add the rice, salt and cashew nuts. Stir fry the rice for 3-4 minutes, then add the water. Bring to the boil and allow to boil steadily for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan tightly and cook for 10-12 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes. Fork through the rice and serve. DISCLAIMER? Copyright 1996 - SelecTV Cable Limited. All rights reserved.
