    1 1/2  cups          basmati rice
        4  tablespoons   butter
        1                onion, -- very finely chopped
        2                garlic cloves, -- finely minced
        4                cardamom pods
        4                cloves

 In a strainer, thoroughly wash rice under running water. In a large
 saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic 5 minutes,
 until tender. Add rice and stir to thoroughly coat with butter mixture. Add
 spices and mix well. Add chicken stock, 2 cups water and salt, to taste.
 Bring to a boil, cover pan tightly and reduce heat to very low. Cook 15
 minutes, until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed. Using a fork,
 fluff rice and serve.
