  1. Heat oil in a pan on high heat. When the oil is hot (you can check by adding a few cumin seeds, and if they sizzle it is ready) add the roasted cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, cardamom and cloves. Stir until you see the cardamom start opening up.

  2. Add washed rice and salt to taste. Stir for 2-3 minutes until the rice starts becoming translucent.

  3. Stir in water and add a quarter piece of lemon or lime.

  4. Cover on high heat until it starts to simmer. Lower heat and cook for 10 minutes.
