  1. In a medium pot, heat the turmeric, cumin, coriander and cinnamon over low heat for about one minute to release the fragrance.

  2. Add the bone broth and/or water, sea salt, and butter and bring to a boil. 

  3. Add the rice and stir well.

  4. Cover and reduce heat to a bare simmer.

  5. Cook with the cover on without stirring until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 15 minutes.

  6. Remove the pot from the heat and let sit with the cover on for 5-10 minutes.

  7. Fluff with a fork, add thawed peas and serve.
