  1. Pick over the rice and put in a large bowl. Wash in several changes of water. Drain, then pour 2 pints fresh water over the rice and let it sit for 30 minutes. Leave to drain in a sieve for 20 minutes,
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan over a medium flame. When hot, put in the onion. Stir and fry until the pieces have browned lightly.
  3. Add the rice, green chilli, garlic, garam masala and salt. Stir gently for 3-4 minutes until the grains are coated with oil. If the rice begins to stick reduce the heat slightly.
  4. Now add the stock and bring to the boil. Cover with a very tight fitting lid, turn heat to very very low and cook for 25 minutes.
