Peshwari naans are naan breads filled with coconut and raisin and are divine! Here the rice is cooked with the same ingredients to make a sweet rice which goes very well with curries such as Korma. Feel free to add more almonds and sultanas if you are partial to them.

  1. Cook the rice in the water with the cloves according to the packet instructions.
  2. Once cooked, drain the rice thoroughly and carefully take out the cloves.
  3. In a separate saucepan heat the ghee and the sugar on a low heat so that it caramelizes.

  5. Add the drained rice and some sultanas and chopped almonds and stir thoroughly.
  6. Cover and cook gently on a low heat for 5-10 mins stirring occasionally to make sure the bottom does not burn.
