Wash rice and let soak for 1 hour. Chop onion into one-inch chunks and add one clove of garlic, 3-4 cardamom seeds, dash of cinnamon and pepper to melted butter in pan. Cook until onion is translucent. Add rice, stir, and cover with boiling water to just below level of rice. Cover and cook for 20-30 minutes until all water is absorbed.
