Kick Up The Flavor In Your Basmati Rice - Cardamom & Cinnamon Basmati Rice

I love to play with Essential Oils and infuse them into my daily life, especially into what I eat and drink!

In this specific recipe, we'll use cardamom, which is not only good for your respiratory system but is awesome for digestion, too! And we'll use cinnamon, which is good for your metabolism, helps maintain an already healthy blood sugar, and is an aphrodisiac!

This is my favorite rice to make with curry.

Basmati Rice With Cardamom and Cinnamon


  • 1. c basmati rice

  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 c. water or vegetable stock (broth)

  • 1-2 drops Cinnamon essential oil


  • Combine rice and ghee or butter into an Instant Pot or in a stove pot.

We enjoy this recipe with any Indian or Moroccan meal. With vegetables or meat— it's your delight!

Eat Well!
P.S. If you're in need of a good curry mix, my go-to is Babas Curry or Moroccan Spice freshly ground.
