  • Add potato, peas, tomato sauce, water, and bay leaf. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until potato is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Add bell pepper and cilantro; simmer until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a separate pan over medium-high heat. Saute rice in the hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until rice is tender, 20 to 40 minutes. Drain off excess water. Add cinnamon, cloves, salt, and pepper.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute ghee for butter if desired.

For stickier rice, use only 2 cups water or chicken broth. Cook until all liquid is absorbed. Replace water with chicken broth if desired.

I added sweet potato, spinach and zucchini. Left out the bell pepper. Delicious. I added 1/2 more water and and would add 1/2 cup more tomato sauce to make it saucier near the end. Read More

I didn't make any changes to this recipe. The blend of spices is mild but tasty. The potatoes make it hearty comfort food. Combining all the spices before you start is the way to go. Read More

So good! The only change I made is to use the whole 8 oz can of tomato sauce and exchanged the rice for warm pitas bread. Oh, and topped with sour cream. This is a DEFINITE KEEPER! Read More
