Cardamom Saffron Rice

This simple low amine rice dish is a colorful, mild carb side dish that works very well with Indian or curry flavors. I like the cardamom in it quite a bit, and though I felt like I added a lot of them, I would add even more than this recipe calls for if you like cardamom. For me, personally, I could have gone a little heavier.

2 C medium grain white rice

3 – 3 1/2 C water

20 small cardamom pods

1 Tbsp safflower oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 pinch saffron

1 very small onion, diced

  • Wash your rice.
  • Add all ingredients to a rice cooker and start it cooking. About halfway through, stir well so that ingredients are well mixed.
  • Serve hot.
