Ruzz Bi I Mukassarat - Egyptian Rice With Nuts

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

According to the site I got this from, this rice mostly accompanies duck and is reserved for holidays because of the expensive nuts.

Thank you for sharing this terrific recipe Mia. I enjoyed it so much. I agree with Karen, I would make this anytime, not just for special occasions. It is so pretty. It was so quick and easy to make with excellent results. The rice was perfectly cooked, with a lovely candy crust over the raisins and nuts. Loved the textures and the sweet, salty nutty flavor. I can't wait till dinner tonight, I'm having the rest of this lovely rice with my pork roast tonight. Made FYC Tag Game 2015.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Finely chop onion.
  2. In the pot where you are going to boil the rice, melt 1 tablespoon butter and fry onions until light brown.
  3. Add rice, fry, stirring, until slightly glassy.
  4. Add stock, salt to taste (if necessary).
  5. Bring to a boil, cover pot and let simmer at low temperature for 20 minutes.
  6. Turn off heat and let the rice stand for 10 more minutes, still covered.
  7. Meanwhile melt the other tablespoon butter in a skillet, add raisins and fry, stirring, until soft (about 2 minutes).
  8. Add nuts and sugar to the raisins, mix well and pour into a bowl that is big enough for the rice.
  9. Fill cooked rice on top of nut-raisin mix, press down and then turn over onto plate.
