    Inge 1505's Note:

    The raisins will plump up sweet and full of the flavors, the cashews will give crunch and the peas will lend additional color and sweetness. One of my favorites from Yamunda Devi's "The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking". Not being a vegetarian I think it is great with a chicken curry and a mixed salad.

      Wash and drain the rice. Start defrosting peas. Preheat oven to 325°F.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a small pot over medium heat. When hot add cashews and fry for 3-5 minutes until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Cashews will darken a few shades while cooling.
    4. 4
      Raise heat to medium hot, add cumin, chili and ginger to the oil, stir-fry 30 seconds. Add rice and stir-fry another 2 minutes until hot.
    5. 5

      This was made, not by me, but by one of my students from India. I supervised. This is a lushious dish. The only changes made was using cumin powder instead of seeds and blanched almonds for cashews. Just a hint...be careful of hot oil spitting. This turned out so pretty and is now in my Make Again cookbook!

      Fabulous dish! Stir-frying the rice and spices makes this extremely flavorful. Beautiful presentation as well. Went together in no time from ingredients I always have on hand. I made this as a light entree but it would be a great side. I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks, Inge, for a super recipe!
