Recipe can be reduced to one-third by reducing all ingredients proportionately. Heat oil in cooker for about 2 minutes. Add bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamoms, cloves and cumin seeds. Stir for a few seconds. Add rice. Fry till rice turns opaque (approximately 3 minutes). Add remaining ingredients. Stir. Close cooker. Bring to full pressure on high heat. Reduce heat and cook for 3 minutes. Remove cooker from heat. Allow to cool naturally for 5 minutes. Press finger-tip control/lift vent weight lightly to release pressure. Open cooker. Fluff up rice gently with a fork to separate grains. Discard bay leaf and cinnamon. Serve hot.
