1 onion chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. allspice

salt to taste

4 Cups Basmati rice

9 cups water

Open garbanzo beans, drain, put beans in with onions and garlic, continue to saute, add spices. Add water and bring to a boil. Rinse Basmati rice according to package directions. Put rice into water and stir. Let this boil for 5 minutes, then cover and turn heat to medium, cook for 10 minutes, turn to low and cook an additional 10 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff rice so it doesn’t stick.
