  • Combine 2 cups hot water and raisins in small bowl. Soak raisins until softened, about 15 minutes. Drain water into large saucepan; reserve raisins.

  • Meanwhile, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion; cover and cook until translucent and tender, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.

    I did have to sub some ingredients and used sultanas for raisins, pecans for the almonds and my saffron had disappeared so used some turmeric and scaled back for 2 serves and 3 of us ate up the lot and thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Chef PotPie, made for Healthy Choices tag game.
