    MarraMamba's Note:

    A recipe from Restaurant Raji, perfect accompaniment to curries or other spicy dishes. Ghee is essentially a clarified butter, there are recipes here for it or it can be bought. Of course you can just melt butter and skim off the solids

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the ghee in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, ginger, garlic, cloves, cardamom pods and cinnamon stick and sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and turmeric and continue to sauté for about 3 minutes, or until the rice is shiny.
    2. 2
      Raise the heat and add the water, coconut milk and salt. Bring to a boil. Immediately reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan. Cook for 10 minutes; then stir in the raisins and apricots. Cover again and cook, without lifting the lid, for 10 more minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and, without lifting the lid, allow the rice to steam for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and stir in the pine nuts. Remove the whole spices if you wish before serving.

      I scaled this back for 3 serves and used Doongara rice for dietary reasons and it was delicious and was cooked to perfection and thoroughly enjoyed by myself, the DM and the DS, with the DM coming back for seconds with the little that was left over. Thank you MarraMamba, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
