You can make this with any rice but basmati is best. I use a rice cooker and highly recommend you get one but you can also use a pot.
I also added sliced green beans and mange tout to mine as I had them in the fridge. You can also add broccoli if you prefer.
Add the bay leaves, cloves, salt, cardamom pod seeds, stock pot and half the mix you made in step one to the water and mix well before cooking.
Mix half the chopped fresh coriander into the rice and serve the other half on top.
