Wash rice & leave to soak for half an hour. Allow to drain. Heat oil in a pot & fry onion till it becomes translucent. Add bay leaves, cinnamon, salt, pepper & rice. Cook until the rice grains become opaque, stirring occasionally. Add peas & stir together until the peas are well coated in oil. Add 4 c water or stock. Bring to a boil, cover & simmer over a low heat until the rice is tender (15 to 20 minutes). Serve with the garnish. Jack Santa Maria, "Greek Vegetarian Cookery"
