DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, combine saffron, cardamom pods, cloves, and rose water; let steep while preparing the remainder of this recipe.
  • In a saucepan, bring 6 cups of water to a boil; stir in rice and parboil for 8 minutes then drain.
  • Stir sugar into the drained rice.
  • In a saucepan (use the same one), heat the ghee or butter, then add the sweetened rice; sprinkle the rose water mixture over the top.
  • Cover the rim of the saucepan with a cloth or use paper towels to form a tight seal when the lid is placed on the pan; steam over very low heat until rice is tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Transfer to a serving platter and top with additional melted butter if desired.
