Onion Rice

When I make Indian food I often make this rice.   It is very tasty and easy to make.   Try it sometime!

1 onion, peeled, halved and then thinly sliced
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup basmati rice
1-3/4 cup chicken broth or water
1/2 tsp. garam masala

Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion.   Fry the onion until nicely browned, then add the garam masala and fry until fragrant.    Meanwhile, rinse the rice and then drain well.    Add the broth and rice to the fried onion.   Bring to a full boil, then reduce heat until it just barely simmers.   Cover tightly and cook for 20 minutes.   Remove from heat and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes.   Fluff with a fork and serve, garnished with a bit of chopped cilantro if you like.   Enjoy!

For a bit more flavor, you can fry a chopped green chile with the onion.
