This recipe also requires a cinnamon stick and a bay leaf, but since these are removed (and not eaten) the recipe analyzer doesn't recognize them. I used Earth Balance margarine for this recipe.

Recipe Ingredients for Cinnamon basmati rice with almonds

1 T margarine
1 yellow onion, cut into 1/4 inch dice
2 cups water
1/4 t ground cloves
1 t ground cinnamon
1 cup basmati rice, uncooked
2/3 cup almonds, chopped
1 t salt
1/4 black pepper

Recipe Directions for Cinnamon basmati rice with almonds

Melt margarine in a medium-high sided saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, cloves, and cinnamon. Cook until onion becomes translucent and mixture is very fragrant. Rinse rice under cold running water. Drain and add to saucepan. Stir well so grains are coated in margarine mixture. Add bay leaf, cinnamon stick, almonds, salt, and pepper to saucepan. Stir in water. Raise heat and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until all water has been absorbed and rice is cooked, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let stand, covered for at least 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
