Onions cut into cubes or thin half-rings and fry in butter until transparent.

Add the seeds to the onions and continue frying for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

There also add diced vegetables. Vegetables can be any that gives the opportunity to every time a new flavor: zucchini, pumpkin, tomatoes, peppers... I had frozen "Spring vegetables". Fry until the vegetables are tender 5-7 minutes.

Add the rice, mix well, season with salt and pepper. Cover and on low heat let it rest for 5-7 minutes. The finished dish can be sprinkled with herbs.
