Cumin Wholegrain Basmati Rice

I’m cleaning up some of my recipes pages, dear reader and splitting off the ones that have become too crowded. If possible I’ll update these with photos in the future, but for now this will have to do. I’ll schedule these so they won’t overrun the site.


1/2 Cup of Wholegrain Basmati Rice
250ml Water
1/8 Small Yellow Onion, Chopped
1/2 Tsp Olive Oil
1/4 Tbsp Cumin
Salt and Black Pepper to Taste


1. Add the Olive Oil and Onion to the pot and cook for 5 minutes on a medium heat.

2. Add the Water, Cumin, Salt, Black Pepper and Rice the pot. Put the pan on high heat. Wait till the water boils and starts bubbling then turn the heat down to medium (3 on hob) cover and let it just sit there for 20 minutes.

3. After the 20 minutes is up, turn off the heat. Let it stand for another 10 minutes or so. After 10 minutes, lift the lid and take a fork and fluff the Rice.
