4. When the onion becomes transparent, add the white rice.
5. When the white rice is transparent, add 1/3 of the mixed ingredients from Step 2. Turn the heat to high, and continue sauteing to evaporate any liquid.
6. Once some of the liquid has evaporated, add 1/2 of the mixed ingredients from Step 2. Keep the heat high and continue sauteing while continuing to evaporate the liquid.
7. Once the liquid has reduced some more, add all of the remaining mixture from Step 2 and cover with a lid. Steam for 13 minutes on medium heat.
8. Remove the lid. Add cheese and mix well. It's ready when the cheese has melted and it has mixed well with the rice.
