 Here's a quick rice dish I hope I remember correctly:
 3 1/2 c water
 2 c basmati rice
 1/2 t garam masala (or your favorite curry flavoring)
 1/4 t turmeric (optional, but go lightly.  This is bitter if 
 		overdone; very nice if you use a light touch)
 4 or 5 cardamoms
 1/2 c frozen peas
 Cook on low heat for about 18 minutes.  About 3 to 5 minutes before
 rice is done tossing in a few cashew pieces is a very nice touch (or 
 not, depending on how fatfree/lowfat you are and what else you're 
 having that may have some fat--anyone know the fat content on these 
 little gems?).
 This is very nice with some stirfry vegies, especially Thai flavored.
