  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepot on high. Add mustard seeds and sauté until they begin to crackle and pop, 2-3 minutes. Add Spice World Easy Onion, sauté for 3–4 minutes. Add Spice World Ready-to-Use Minced Garlic, saffron, salt, and rice, stirring until all rice grains have been coated with oil. Add water, salt, and pepper, and stir to loosen all the rice from the bottom of the pot.
  2. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil on high until steam begins to escape from under the lid. Remove from the heat and set aside. Set the timer for 21 minutes. Do not remove the lid! After 21 minutes, remove the lid, add cilantro, and fluff the rice with a fork.
