    morgainegeiser's Note:

    Lemons and lines are often used to flavor rice and wheat dishes in India. Here the tang of lemon is coupled with exquisitely-flavored pistachios, creating a subtle, yet flavorful dish. Dotted with plump raisins, this attractive dish makes a nice accompaniment to any entree.

    1. 1
      Wash the rice (and soak, if desired) as described on package, if needed.
    2. 2
      Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in rice, raisins, and lemon peel. When water boils again, reduce heat to medium-low, cover saucepan, and simmer 20 minutes (45 minutes for brown rice), until liquid is absorbed.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat and let stand covered, 5 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork, spoon into a serving bowl, and sprinkle with pistachios.

      I made this to go along with a fish curry dish tonight. Added some sea salt and fresh lemon juice as well as the zest and it came out very nice. I really enjoyed the nuts too. Easy and flavorful. I would certainly make this again.

      This came out well, but it just wasn't to our liking. The flavors didn't come together in the way I was expecting. Thanks for posting, though.
