      this was a really nice side dish to chicken. i would have browned the rice in the onions, etc, then added the broth etc, but i followed your directions. i browned my onions in macadamia nut oil, cut the recipe in half but cooking time was fine-- you mention adding the cardamom twice- so i added some with the stock and rice, which i made in the rice steamer, and added 1/2 tsp with the garlic and ginger onion mix. pistachios were a great touch.

      Wow Rita, I scaled this to half and it still made a huge amount of rice. Nice different taste though.The only problem I had was that in the instructions you add the cardamom twice but not in the ingredients, so I split the amount in half and added it to the rice when boiling and the other half later when putting it together. It didn't seem to make any difference. We loved the taste of cranberries and pistashios together, they seem to compliment each other. We had about 3/4 of it left over and other plans for today, so I froze it, I see no reason why it won't be just as good reheated. Thanks for sharing, I will definately keep this one for a large gathering.
