  2. 3 cups water
  3. ½ cup green peas (Optional)
  4. 1 tsp Cumin seed (opt)
  5. 1 Bay leaf (opt)
  6. Salt to taste


  1. Wash Rice
  2. Add water, salt green peas, and cumin seed
  3. Cook covered till water boils
  4. Keep half covered and cook for 5 minutes at lower (1 or 2) temp
  5. Cover, turn off stove, but keep it on hot stove at least half an hour (works best on flat topped stove)
