Ingredients

1 1/2 cup
rice, white basmati
1 tablespoon
ghee
1 teaspoon
fennel seeds
3 cups
water
1/4 cup
raisins
6  
cloves
1  
cinnamon stick
4  
cardamom pods
1/2 teaspoon
sea salt
1/4 cup
almonds (slivered)
1/2 cup
coconut, shredded unsweetened
1 cup
carrot (grated)
1/2 cup
green peas

Instructions

Rinse and drain rice. Heat ghee or oil in a heavy-bottomed pot. Add fennel seeds and toast until lightly browned. Add rice, water, raisins, whole cloves, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, toast almonds and coconut in a dry skillet until golden brown. When rice is fully cooked, fluff with a fork. Gently stir in almonds, coconut, grated carrots, and peas. (The hot rice cooks the carrots and peas while preserving maximum nutrition.) Serve hot.
