DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the chicken stock- let it simmer while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and saute the garlic and onion for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the rice and tumeric powder to the garlic and onions, and lightly fry the mixture until the rice is yellowed (about 2 minutes).
  • Transfer the rice/onion/garlic mixture to a small pot, then add raisins, lemon slice, and salt to the mixture.
  • Add the chicken stock into the rice mixture, making sure that there isn't too much or too little liquid (the liquid level should be about 1 inch above the rice level) Bring mixture to a boil, then bring to low heat, allowing to simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Stir occasionally to prevent the rice at the bottom from getting burnt.
  • Mix in remaining ingredients (cinammon, parsley, tomato, pepper).
  • Serve warm.
