- For rice: Place rice in a wire-mesh sieve. Rinse under cold running tap water, lifting rice with your fingers to clean thoroughly; drain.
- In a medium saucepan, bring the 2 1/2 cups water to boiling. Add salt to the water. Slowly add rice to water; stir in onion. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 45 minutes, or until rice is tender and grains split. Remove from heat. If needed, drain excess water.
- Stir in hazelnuts and blueberries. Let stand, covered, for 8 minutes. Serve hot.
- To toast hazelnuts: Spread hazelnuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350 degrees F. oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully to avoid burning and stirring once or twice. To remove the papery skins from hazelnuts, rub the nuts with a clean dish towel.
