Ingredients

    Water, tap, 12 cup (8 fl oz)
    Basmati Rice (1 cup), 2.5 serving
    *Margarine, soft, .5 cup
    Granulated Sugar, 2 cup
    Rose Water (1 cup), 1 serving
    Saffron, 1 tsp
    Cinnamon, ground, 1 tbsp
    Almonds, .5 cup, slivered

Directions

Wash rice in 3 changes of water to remove all of the starch. Bring rice, water, butter and salt to boil in large pot. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until soft but not mushy, about 30 minutes.

Add sugar, rose water and saffron. Cook, stirring often to prevent sticking on bottom, until rice breaks up and is consistency of polenta, 15 to 20 minutes. Turn into serving bowls and garnish with cinnamon and almonds.

  • This sounds amazing!! The only thing I would change is to use butter in place of the margarine. Thanks for posting :) - 6/18/09
