      Title: Basmati rice with raisins, nuts and peas
 Categories: Rice, Indian
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      2 c  Basmati rice
      2 tb Vegetable oil
      2 sm Onions; thinly sliced
      2 ts Cumin seeds
     12    Whole black peppercorns
      8    Whole cloves
      6    Whole cardamom pods
      3    Bay leaves
      1    Cinnamon stick
      4 c  Water
    1/4 c  Whipping cream
      1 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Saffron threads
  1 1/2 c  Frozen peas
    1/4 c  Chopped almonds
    1/4 c  Chopped cashews
    1/4 c  Raisins
 
  Rinse rice under cold running water. Place rice in large bowl. Add
  enough water to cover by 3 inches. Let stand 20 minutes. Drain.
  
  Heat oil in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions;
  sauté until golden, about 8 minutes. Add cumin, peppercorns, cloves,
  cardamom, bay leaves and cinnamon; sauté until onions are brown,
  about 4 minutes.
  
  Add rice to spices and stir 2 minutes. Add 4 cups water, cream, salt
  and saffron. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover saucepan almost
  completely and cook until almost all liquid is absorbed, about 20
  minutes.
  
  Add peas to rice. Cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 5
  minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with nuts and raisins.
  
  >From India's restaurant in Denver, this side dish has whole
  peppercorns, cardamom and cloves. They are not meant to be eaten, so
  discard them when serving the rice.
