This recipe is sweet enough to be used as a dessert due to the dates. I used crasins instead of raisins and added a 1/2 teaspoon of some parsley I wanted to use up before it went bad. Otherwise I made it as written. I served it with duck a la orange, when it went with perfectly. I used a wild rice blend. Made for NAME tag.
This was made on a whim. It's yummy but I made it fast so I kind of cooked it more according to the way I am used to and with less flair on the amounts as I had what I had. I used Indian white basmati rice, sea salt, to taste, sweet (unsalted) butter, less slivered almonds and less Iranian dates, for contrast I used yellow raisins, powdered cinnamon (cassia here!! The cheap cinnamon), plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for Let's go to Jordan & Kuwait this August 2012! (Kuwait)
