      Wow! This was a real stretch for my family and I honestly was not sure if they would like it or not. Cinnamon and raisins usually mean "dessert" to them. But we all totally loved this, it was delicious, and I am so glad we tried it. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 3 :)

      Okay I followed the recipe an I didn't. I sauted the onions as call for and kept the spice amounts the same except for the salt I used 1 tsp instead of half. Once I sauted the onions I added the spices and fried for 1 min as suggested and then added the rice( which I used less than called for) and fried for another min until well coated. Instead of water I used 3 cups chicken broth to 1 1/2 c Basmati rice. I poured it all into my rice cooker. Turned it on and voila! When I fluffing the rice before serving I added 1/2 pine nuts and skipped the fruit because my guys do not like fruit in their rice. It was very good and even my picky 6 yr old had seconds. DH had ordered more in the future. This recipe is now added to my book of staples TY!

      This is a very nice rice. I used Jasmine rice and only 3 cups of water. I also only cooked it 20 minutes once I put the lid on. I expected the spices to be stronger but it was very mild. I think it would be better made with chicken or vegetable broth in place of the water. I ate it with Chicken Curry and they went very well together. Thanks for the recipe! Made for Zaar Tag.
