Add the grated coconut to the rice onion mixture and stir in the coconut water and the water.

Stir in the cardamom pods, cloves, and cinnamon. Increase heat to bring the rice mixture to a simmer.

Lower the heat the low, cover, and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and let the rice steam in the residual heat, covered, for 10 more minutes.

Remove lid and remove cardamom pods, cloves, and cinnamon.

Note: *Make the clarified butter by melting 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a saucepan on medium low heat. When melted, skim off the foam and then strain contents slowly through cheesecloth into a bowl to remove all solids. Use per recipe instructions.

**Coconut water can be store bought or homemade. To make coconut water, put 1 cup of grated coconut in a quart of water, bring it to a simmer, then remove it rom heat and let it sit, covered, for 20 minutes. Strain the water and use in place of the coconut water and plain water.
