Recipe by Stacky5
This is a traditional South African recipe, which comes from the great culinary tradition of the Cape Malays -- originally brought in as slaves in the 17th century. It's easy and plain, but great with meats like venison, corned beef tongue or any meat with gravy. Recipe courtesy of Allrecipes. Posted for Zaar World Tour II.

Very good and tasty but on the adventurous side... very different Your guests will either love it or hate it...so be ready :) I personally love it but I am not afraid to try something new. The next time, I would decrease the sugar to 2 Tablespoons and maybe go for 1 teaspoon of turmetic only because it is very strong.
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground turmeric
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup dark seedless raisins
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 1⁄2 cups water

- In a saucepan, combine the rice, salt, turmeric, sugar, cinnamon, raisins, butter and water. Bring to a boil uncovered.
- When it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and let it simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, or until rice is fluffy and water has been absorbed.
