Playing up and down with my drafts made me realize that I had promised to post this recipe in my Margat Bamia
post way back in December and I am yet to post it! Sheesh... Sometimes, managing drafts becomes slightly a bit tricky. Not that I am complaining because I like the fact that I have enough to bank on, that I can afford a slack time in between or even pull down a recipe just because the picture was not good enough and can be made better. But when I give a peak of something in one recipe, I guess I must make it a point to post the recipe within a time frame rather than too late... Hmm...
Without any more delay, let me post this very simple rice dish for you. A mild spiced rice with the intermittent bite of raisins, HD and the kids loved it to the core and it was such a good match with the curry. I feel that the rice would go well on its own, with just an onion salad on the side! No hard work there, just straightforward and quick!
Middle Eastern Yellow Rice
2 cups basmati rice
3 1/4 cup water
Salt to taste
1 tsp turmeric powder
25 gm butter
1 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp sugar
1/4 cup raisins
Wash and drain the rice. Boil water along with salt. Once it starts to boil, add all the ingredients and stir. Allow the water to come to a rolling boil. Keep on simmer and close the lid. Cook till the rice is done and all the water is absorbed. Fluff it up with a fork and serve warm!
