    Cookgirl's Note:

    Here is another Persian rice recipe this time with the lovely flavors of star anise, perfume-y Jasmine rice and sweet dried apricots. Local recipe. *Update: the amount of star anise in this recipe was reduced from 3-4 to 1-2.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/3 cup roasted pistachios
    • 1/3 cup dried apricot, roughly chopped
    • 1/4 cup roasted almonds, roughly chopped (I used slivered almonds and skipped the chopping)
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 cup jasmine rice (can substitute basmati or any other non-sticky rice)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt (reduced from 1 teaspoon)
    • 1 -2 star anise
    • 2 1/8 cups boiling water
    • 2 red onions

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Reserve a tablespoon each of pistachios, apricots and almonds for garnish.
    2. 2
      Melt a tablespoon of butter in a medium saucepan on low heat. Toss the rice in the butter, then add the remaining pistachios, apricots and almonds, plus the salt and star anise.
    3. 3
      Add boiling water and simmer. Cover and check after 15 minutes, but do not stir.
    4. 4
      Slice onions thinly and place on a baking tray in a flat layer. Drizzle with 4 tablespoons of butter and place in a 350-degree oven. Bake, tossing occasionally, until crispy.
    5. 5
      Place rice mixture in a serving dish and garnish with the reserved pistachios, almonds and apricots, plus the crispy onions.
    6. 6
      Heat remaining butter almost to bubbling, then pour over the rice so that it glistens.

      4 1/2 stars. You can really taste the star anise. Be sure you like that flavour. I used the Basmati rice option, sea salt and sweet onions following the rest. The onions never crisped much but they were good. Made for NA*ME Tag! Come play!
