Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse rice and place in medium bowl; add enough cold water to cover rice and let stand 10 minute.
  2. While rice is soaking, heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat; add cumin seed; cook and stir 30 sec.
  3. Stir in onions, garlic and ginger; cook 5 minute or until crisp-tender, stirring constantly.
  4. If using chicken add now; cook and stir 2 minute (If using shrimp, add at the same time as you add the rice).
  5. Drain rice and add to chicken mixture with remaining ingredients; mix well; cover; bring to boil.
  6. Simmer on medium-low heat 25 minutes, add peas and cook another 5 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed (some rice cooks more quickly to be sure you don't overcook).
  7. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minute.
