Put the oil in the cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Rice Plus™ Multi-Cooker. Select the Quick Cook function and press Start. Once oil is hot and shimmering, about 2 minutes, add the ginger and garlic. Sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the onion; sauté about 2 minutes, or until softened and translucent. Add the potato with ¼ teaspoon each of the salt and pepper and all of the spices. Cook until just tender, about 10 minutes. Add the rice, water and zest. Close the lid of the cooker and let cook. When there are about 5 minutes remaining in the cooking time, stir in the peas, cilantro and the remaining salt and pepper. Close lid again and let the rice finish cooking. Once the audible tone has sounded to indicate the end of cooking, open the lid and adjust seasonings to desired taste.
