    1. Heat a little oil in a saucepan and turn spices, onions and rice a bit.
    2. Throw in chicken stock or water and cover with pot lid.
    3. Simmer on a low-medium heat for 15 minutes.

    Tip

    Do not stir rice around or it will go "mushy". To evapourate any additional liquid, at the end, simmer with lid off.
