Ingredients

  • Ingredients:

  • 2

    cups long grain rice

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 2

    cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 or 2

    cinnamon sticks

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 1/2

    teaspoon ginger

  • 1/2

    teaspoon white pepper

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2

    teaspoon turmeric (or 1/8 teaspoon Moroccan yellow colorant)

  • 1/4

    cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1/4

    cup fresh or frozen peas*

  • 1

    red or yellow bell pepper, finely chopped*

  • 1

    carrot, finely chopped*

  • 4 1/2

    cups (about 1 liter) of chicken or vegetable stock

  • 1/4

    teaspoon saffron threads, crushed

Directions

Preparation: * You can substitute other vegetables of your choice, up to 1 cup. In a sauce pan, heat the stock almost to boiling. Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients – except the saffron – in a very large skillet or shallow stock pot. Cook the rice and vegetables over medium heat, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until the onions are translucent and the rice begins to color. Add the stock and saffron to the rice, stirring only once. Bring the stock to a simmer, and taste for salt. Adjust the seasoning if desired. Cover the rice, reduce the heat to low, and simmer gently and undisturbed, for about 25 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
