PERFUMED BASMATI RICE

Ingredients

90g basmati rice

180g water

30g coconut milk

3 garlic cloves, cut lengthways into 6

20g fresh ginger, finely sliced

.5 cinnamon stick

2 star Anis

6 cardamom pods

25g fresh coriander

50g flaked almonds, toasted, sprinkled on top

Method

  • Apart from the rice and coconut milk, place all ingredients in a pan and simmer for 10 minutes
