Peas Pilau

2 cups of basmati rice
2 tablespoons butter or ghee
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
4 cloves
4 green cardamom pods
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup green peas, frozen
3 cups water

Place rice in a bowl with just enough cold water to cover it.  Set aside.

Melt the butter over medium heat in a skillet.  Add the cumin seeds, bay leaf, cloves, cardamom and cinnamon stick and saute until fragrant, just under a minute.  Add the onions and saute until lightly browned.  Add the ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute.  Last, stir in the peas and salt.  Switch off heat.

Drain the rice, and place in a rice cooker along with the pea mixture and water.   Cook according to manufacturers instructions.
