    chef Honeybear48a's Note:

    Basmati rice flavored with onions, carrots, raisins and potatoes. My mother asked and was given this recipe from a restaurant that has since gone out of business. She made it only a few times due to it being so labor intensive. I enjoy the extra time I put into this recipe because it is well worth it. After making it once, you will see it is quicker to make the next time. Good luck and enjoy.
