Mexican Rice


1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 large onions, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seed
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 cup long grain white rice
3 cup tomatoes, pureed
2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup boiling water


Saute garlic and onion in olive oil until the onions are a golden. Add coriander, cloves, pepper, and ginger. Stir, and then add rice. Continue to saute the mixture, stirring often, until rice is coated. Add pureed tomatoes, salt, and boiling water. Stir the mixture once, then cover and simmer the rice over low heat for 25 minutes. Rice should absorb the liquid. Turn off heat and let rice sit covered for 5 more minutes. Serve warm.
