  1. Rinse the rice with water 1 or 2 times and soak in 2 cups of water for 15 minutes and cook it in the rice cooker and set aside once it is done.
  2. Heat oil in a wide pan. Add cumin seeds. When they crackle, add cloves, cinnamon, ginger, garlic, star anise, green chilli, cashew and fry for 15 seconds. The spices will start to release their aroma.
