2 tablespoon(s) butter
2 cloves
1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon bits
2 medium onion(s) chopped
2 cup(s) rice
2 tablespoon(s) vermicelli
2 big tomatoes chopped
2 green bell pepper(s) deseeded and diced small
1 teaspoon(s) red chilli powder
4 teaspoons freshly ground black peppercorns
4 cups water
salt to taste

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add the cloves and cinnamon bits. Fry briefly. Add the chopped onions and continue stir-frying on medium heat till very lightly browned. Add the rice and vermicelli. Mix well and saute for about 4 minutes or the rice is lightly browned and aromatic.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on very low heat for about 15 minutes or till the rice grains are cooked and firm.

Rice should be cooked such that the grains are firm, well-separated and not overcooked.
