Onion Rice

I made this to be served with the Fenugreek Chicken just to make it special from regular steamed rice or roti's. I never made this onion rice before but came up with this recipe because I had leftover onions from the onions that I chopped for the chicken recipe so thought of making use of those.
Sometimes we come up with new recipes from leftovers which makes our work easy and can be changed into new recipe in no time. :-)

2 cups of Cooked Rice
1 medium Red Onion Chopped
1 medium Yello Onion Chopped
Salt to taste
1 tsp Oil
1 tsp Ghee (clarified butter or butter)

for Roasting:
1 tbsp Cumin Seeds
1 tbsp Whole Black Peppercorns

1. Dry roast both cumin seeds and peppercorns for about 5 mins in medium low heat and allow it to cool and coarsely powder it in a mixer.
2. In a pan add oil and ghee and when it's hot add onions and saute them until they turn slight brown and then add salt and the ground powder and rice and mix well and serve it with your choice of side dish or the Fenugreek Chicken that I served with this rice.
