Five stars with my changes and I adapted it for pressure cooker/Instant Pot. I sautéed the onion in the pressure cooker insert with olive oil, and once translucent added the spices to bloom. I used a few whole cloves instead of ground. Added the 1 cup of rice and sautéed to coat with oil and lightly toast. Added 1.5 cups chicken broth and a pinch of salt. Cooked on Rice setting (low pressure about 12 minutes), and let it natural release for 10 minutes. Released remaining pressure and added 1/2 cup peas. Then fluffed. Full of flavor and the rice was nicely separated.
