  1. Place cumin seeds in a sauce pan and heat slowly until aromatic. Add chicken stock, rice, salt, pepper and dried currants and bring to a boil.
  2. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until stock is absorbed and rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Let rice stand, covered for 5 minutes, then add parsley and almonds and fluff with a fork.
