How can we prepare simple Fried Rice

2 cups basmati (long grain rice)
2 tbsp. ghee
1 black cardamom
1" piece cinnamon
2 cloves
5 cups water (approx.)

Wash rice gently. Put in filter and stand for 10 minutes. Heat ghee in a deep heavy pan. Add whole spices, stir. Add rice carefully. Stir fry very gently with a spatula for 2-3 minutes. Add water, cover, bring to boil. Simmer covered, till rice is cooked and water has evaporated. Press a grain, it must mash on putting pressure. Do not overcook, or the rice will taste lumpy. Add more hot water towards 3/4 done if required.
Making time: 30 minutes
Makes: 4 servings bowl
