Trying out some Garam Masala powder from Silverspice. I used it to cook rice..very nice. Can be used for cooking meat or vegetables too.

I didn't use Basmati rice but the original Jasmine Rice.



Recipe yields for 4 persons
Ingredients:
2 cups washed rice
3 cups water
1 medium red onion(chopped)
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp green cardamon seeds
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tbsp Garam Masala powder(SilverSpice brand)
3 tbsp Ghee
coriander leaves for garnishing

Method:
1. Heat up wok with ghee.
2. Add chopped onions, mustard seeds, fennel seeds and cardamon to stir fry till fragrant.(about 2 mins on high fire)
3. Add washed rice and garam masala powder and fry for 3 mins.
4. Remove and add to a large casserole pot.
5. Add water, cover the pot and MW on HIGH for 25 mins.
6. Leave it in the MW oven to stand for another 5 mins.
7. Remove and fluff up rice by tossing it inside the pot with a rice scoop.
8. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Notes:
If you want to use a rice cooker to cook the rice, just add enough water to cook it. 3 cups of water is only for MW oven's method.

Silver Spice brand is not sold at any shops in Singapore. Its marketed in UK and India.

Since I have Basmati rice in my pantry, would like to try. Thanks for the recipe.
About cardamon seeds, is it expensive in Sg? Here costs about SG$17 for a tiny bottle *sigh*

Gina, when using cardamon seeds do I have to remove the green husk or just throw in as a whole? I saw an Indian rice recipe that require the husk to be removed. A little confused.

I didn't remove the husks. because its rice, and the seeds are white and small. If I remove it, and cook, chances are biting the seeds is very high. its quite bitter. I use the cardamon seeds to flavour and fragrant the rice. As a whole, its easier to pick it out
