Written by Exiled

1- In saucepan Fry Onions, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, garlic, bell pepper until onion is brown and bell pepper is soft

2- Add Tomatoes and Coriander and mix sauce until it thickens

3- Add Cumin and salt and pepper to taste

4- Pour the sauce into a medium baking dish

5- Pour the cooked rice on the Sauce (spread the rice evenly on the sauce)

6- make a separation in the middle of the rice and to fit a foil cup that has 1/3 cup - 1/2 cup of cooking oil (you can make the foil cup with regular aluminum foil)

7- Put a burning red hot coal inside the oil that is inside the foil cup and cover the baking dish tightly for 15 minutes - the charcaol and oil will make a certain aroma.

To have a red hot charcoal will take some time - so leave one on a stove burner while you are cooking everything.

8- Discard the foil cup including the oil and charcoal

9- Serve - you may mix the rice if you want or you may serve as is
