      Thanks again for another keeper! I added about 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. The only other slight change that I made was that I added the rice at the same time as the garlic to somewhat toast the rice as well for about 3 minutes before adding the broth, spices and raisins.

      Delicious Recipe and esay too. I left out the almonds because I didnt have any. I made this in my rice cooker as follows: 1. I melted 2 Tb of butter & 2 Tb light olive oil in a pan . 2. I sauted the chopped onions until translucent-over medium. 3. I added the chopped garlic and sauted about 1 min more. 4. I added the rice ( well rinsed), spices ( including the pinch or saffron and cayenne) and raisins and mixed well and sauted for another minute ( maybe a bit more) so that the rice/spice/onions/garlic/raisins all mixed together and the rice was sauted also. 5. I poured the mix into the rice cooker and added the chicken stock-I used about 2 3/4 cup of chicken stock-I find that the rice cooker uses less liquid. 6. I let the rice cooker cook in the white rice setting. Thanks KITTENCAL for another great recipe
