 In a large cooking pot pour in water along with cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, caraway seeds and salt. Give it a stir, cover and let it come to a boil.

let the rice cook while stirring occasionally to make rice which has all grains separated, (not sticky rice). Alternately, use a slow-cooker if you wish Drain the rice and keep aside.
Cook the egg until just cook,turning half away.

In a large saucepan at medium heat, add 5 tablespoons oil.
