An easy side dish also known as funeral rice. Everyone's stove top produces different heat, adjust cooking temps as you normally do for rice. I like to substitute low salt chicken broth for the water. Use your favorite rice except for brown.

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan sauté the rice in 1 tbs butter 3-5 minutes or until fragrant.
  2. Add the water and bring to a boil.
  3. Turn burner to lowest temp, add the raisins, cloves, salt, turmeric, and ginger.
  4. Cover and simmer gently until the rice is tender and all the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes, if rice isn't quite done you can add a splash more water if needed.
  5. Add the butter, fluff up with a fork and discard the ginger.

This rice was relly delicious and colorful!
I used only the first tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 3/4 water as I used basmati rice.
The flavor was perfect and looks wonderful. Thanks for this great recipe!

Almost dessert! I tossed all the ingredients in my ricer and walla the most flavorful rice. I didn`t use the 2 tablespoons of butter.

Mine took a little bit longer to cook but then that may be because the Aussie cup is a little bit bigger than the American on, also we felt there was a need to cut back on the cloves as they really overpowered the dish but would certainly make again but cut back the water by 1/4 cup and use only half the amount of cloves and up the ginger and the sultanas that I used instead of raisins.
