Blend the rice and oil in a heavy skillet (one with a tight fitting cover)
over medium heat, stirring until golden in color. Add onion and cook a minute
or so. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low;
then cover and simmer 30 minutes without lifting lid. Gently lift rice with
fork, cover again and cook 10 to 20 minutes longer. Add more water if needed.
When rice is done, remove from heat. Lift gently with a fork and allow to
stand 1 minute to take up the moisture.
